Track description:
Important note:  The 1st half of the route has no markers. It is recommended to use the GPS track file.

  • Starting point – Center of the village Jish (1).
  • Find your way always uphill through the village streets  to reach point (2).
  • Continue on the dirt road until the junction (3).
  • Fork right to another dirt road and continue down. Ignore a ‡Black‡  marked track joining from the left and continue until you reach the winter pond “Ha’ain Hakuchla”meaning “The blue eye” (4).
  • This is a very nice setting for a picnic. Relax on the meadow near the pond and enjoy the view.
  • The next section is a little tricky because you have to find our way down without any marker or road/trail. Just follow carefully the GPS along the bed of a dry wadi until it merges with the main stream of Gush Halav. (5) 
  • In this area if you are lucky enough to be in the right season you will encounter impressive Almond tree blossom.
  • we are now on the ‡Green‡ marked trail that follows the stream.
  • Follow the ‡Green‡ markers  up stream until you reach the ancient synagogue of Gush Halav. (6)
  • Continue with ‡Green‡ markers all the way to the village center.

  1. היי ארז.
    הרעיון מקסים.
    כדאי להוסיף דרכי הגעה בתחבורה ציבורית, או לחליפין קישור לאתר אגד.
    לציין אטרקציות עונתית ברזולוציה של חודשים כולל פריחות, מעיינות אם יש וכו’.

    1. תודה רבה
      הגעה בתחבורה ציבורית קיימת בצורה מושלמת במפות גוגל. (אתה בוחר תחבורה ציבורית במקום רכב פרטי). אני אוסף הערה והסבר שזה דו שימושי.
      אטרקציות עונתיות – צודק אבל…… שומר את זה לשלב שני כי זה דורש המון עבודה וצריך לראות קודם אם יש ביקוש משמעותי לאתר
