What to expect

Explore the Judean Desert aboard a jeep and discover its incredible heritage on this unforgettable day tour. Enjoy total immersion in local history and culture by meeting the Bedouins and admiring some of the most significant monuments in the area.

Your journey of discovery in the Holy Desert starts in the town of Keidar. You'll be guided through the interesting world of the Bedouins and stop near a water cistern to see and learn how locals used to live in the desert, without running water in the past.

From there you'll reach the highest point in the area called Mt. Montar, also known as Mt. Azazel, the place where the high priests from the Temple of Jerusalem used to go to on the holiest day for the Jews, Yom Kippur. Here you'll see one of the Hashmonite fortresses built in the 2nd century BC.

Coming down from the mountain, admire a picturesque monastery built on cliffs overlooking the Kidron Valley. Here you will get to understand the importance of the Judean Desert for the isolation of the monks.
