The Palestine Heritage Trail

The Palestine Heritage Trail

The Palestine Heritage Trail continues through the wilderness between the shrine of An-Nabi Musa and Mar Saba Monastery with scenery full of breathtaking views on remote desert mountains and valleys. Afterward, the way meanders steeply up the hills towards Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. The town is a natural rest and recovery point for hikers. From there, the path continues to Artas, passing near ancient aqueducts, Solomon’s Pools, and the picturesque convent of Hortus Conclusus. This section ends in the historical village of Tuqu’ with a view on the Herodium (Jabal al-Fourdis), a fortress built by King Herod the Great.
