On our way back to Tel Avis we stopped here. It was a nice walk seeing nature. The mountains and waterfalls. We even saw some animals.

It's an oasis in the desert, and a nice contrast to the surroundings, some little waterfalls, a stream, and some animals, however nothing particularly special. Not worth the 28 ILS entry.

Based on reviews our expectations were probably too high... I mean, it’s an oasis in a desert. Nice and refreshing for sure to see some lush greenish colors, but somehow didn’t convince us. We started quite early in Wadi David, via: - David’s waterfall -...More

One of the greatest places in the israeli dessert. Animals, waterfalls, amazing view and breathtaking history. In the summer it’s a little hot but that’s why you can enter to the pools and get refreshed!

There are a few waterfalls along the path. They're all nice... but they're only stops on the way to the grand finale. You'll know it when you see it. The hike is moderate but not long. Also you get to go through a cool natural...More

Ein Gedi is one of the places where David hid from King Saul. And you can understand why! The rough terrain and the numerous caves would make tracking down anyone difficult--especially on the higher ranges. But David also chose this place for its waterfalls and...More
