The Kumeran Canyon is situated in the north of the Judea Desert, about 30 min. from Jerusalem. In the caves on the banks of this canyon the famous “Dead Sea Scrolls” were found.
Info about the hike:
The hike starts in the parking lot of the Kumeran National Park, close to Kibbutz Kalya. From there we will hike across the canyon and up its south bank to the top waterfall. From there on we will spend the rest of the hike rappelling down its waterfalls and finish with a short hike back to the parking lot.
There are 6 rappels in the canyon, the highest 40 meters (130 feet). It is possible to just rappel some of them for a shorter and easier hike.
Level of difficulty:
Easy/Medium. No prior experience needed
