Walking Holiday in Palestine.
Walking along the Path of Abraham
“Discover the ancient wonders of this part of the middle east, the birthplace of many religions and the locations from many Biblical stories from Jericho to Bethlehem. You will be passing through thousands of years of history that is etched in every small town to old cliff side monasteries and monuments. Palestine is a real place of discovery from the dead sea to the River Jordan to vast deserts and deep mountain Gorges.”
On this Walking Holiday in Palestine we will be walking Abraham’s Path. This trail travels north to south through the West Bank of Palestine. Your Journey starts from the Old town of Nablus. This was once once a thriving market place. For centuries many travelers passed through the middle east from the Persians to Romans and the Ottomans. Thee are still many markets here and Turkish Baths from the Ottoman empire.
From Neblus we make our way south through small towns, mountains, open plains and deserts as we follow in the footsteps of Abraham towards his final resting place in Hebron.
Along our way we visit many locations of great historical and religious importance such as the Dead sea, the River Jordan and Bethlehem to name a few. We will also be spending some time in Jerusalem.
