Nahal Rahaf

A great desert adventure of hiking in the Judean desert and rappelling down dry waterfalls into natural water pools

The Rahaf Gorge, south of Masada, is one of the most beautiful of the Judean Desert canyons – a narrow, deep  canyon with waterfalls and Rocks. The canyon provides an adventurous and special experience – sliding between rocks and passing through small dry waterfalls with ropes, rappelling and sliding down n 4 dry waterfalls.
The trail of Nahal Rahaf will start ny climbing the ancient Rahaf pass to the top of canyon, from where we will descend to the spectacular Rahaf Gorge. The first waterfall is a challenging descent with a rope and wedges. In the waterfall after it (about 8 meters) we will slide with rappelling. We will continue on a short walk in the narrow canyon and pass small cascades that we will descend with ropes. From here, we will rappel a few more tall waterfalls with the last one at a height of about 45 meters.
