On our eighth hiking day we will climb up the major valley that starts from Meron mountain – the Amud named after the stone column at its end. This is one of the most hiked trails on the Israel trail due to the power of the nature in this upper galilee Canyon – we will bath in its pools and climb up to the third holy city on our journey – Zefat – just like the 16th century wise men of the Kabala golden era did.
Day 11 (Wednesday) – In the morning we will go on a full historical and spiritual tour in zefat. Afternoon the bus will take us to the Dan natural reserve – to finish the Israel national trail from Dan to Eilat.
As you can see there are 11 days planed from which 9 are hiking days on the Israel trail and 2 are city walking tours in Jerusalem and zefat. During the many transports there will be prolific guidance on the bus and many stops at the best view points along the way.
