Har Atzmon Hike

09/12-9:00 am

₪60.00 – ₪80.00

Har Atzmon

Thursday 9 December

Guide: Dani Margolis

Join us for a fun and challenging hike around the ridge of Mount Atzmon in the Lower Galilee, offering amazing views of  Netofa Valley, Rimon Rridge and the hills of Nazareth. If it’s a clear day we’ll see views as far as the mountains of Gilad in Jordan.

The ridge is south-facing but covered in flowers during the winter months. We start with a short visit to the archeological site of Tel Yodfat with its fantastic story from the days of Josephus and its huge caves. From there, we traverse the ridge eastwards to a small tributary of Nachal Yodfat and we follow that down to Nachal Yodfat with the Netofa Valley beneath us.

We turn westwards and slowly climb 5km to the peak of Mount Atzmon for a superb view. After a well-earned recovery and some lunch, we descend to the springs of El Vasta and El Kaziva beside the village of Kaukab. From the springs we return to Yodafat to our vehicles, in all approximately 13km length.

Our guide, Dani Margolis, is well known to our regular hikers. His immense knowledge and love of the land make every hike with him a real treat.
