Ein Prat: A walk in heaven

Join a short and charming nature walk in the wonderful oasis of Ein Prat. During the tour he enjoyed the unique blooms of the season for the reserve, lovely corners next to clear pools, and we learned that they have always been a center of attraction for hermits and fugitives: the prophet Jeremiah from Anatot, the first hermit monk Hariton and other figures from the past. The tours departed from the information station in the shed adjacent to the on-site service center.
