Tuqu’ To Ar-Rashayida

Tuqu’ To Ar-Rashayida

This hike will take you from Tuqu’ through Wadi el-Jihar to 'Arab ar-Rashayida village. Here in Bedouin lands you will see their camels and livestock in pastures. The path descends into the spectacular Wadi el-Jihar, a deep limestone canyon in the desert. The caves there have been used for homes for a long time.

The hike from Tuqu’ to Wadi el-Jihar will take about 4 hours; the terrain is rocky, with a few small climbs. Once you emerge from the valley and come to 'Arab ar-Rashayida village, you will have the opportunity to try a traditional Palestinian meal at one of the homestays there.
