Ein Gedi

The Ein Gedi Nature Preserve is an oasis, home to one of Israel's most spectacular waterfalls, David's Waterfall. Near the Dead Sea, Ein Gedi is one of Israel's prime day hiking destinations.

The water flowing through Ein Gedi makes it a hotspot for diverse wildlife in the middle of the arid desert. For those visiting the Dead Sea, Ein Gedi is a great overnight camping destination.
