Trek through Avdat National Park, a deep canyon near the World Heritage Site of Avdat, known for its picturesque natural springs. The canyon and its trails veer through a dry river valley in the arid Negev desert, and as evidence shows, were once inhabited by ancient Nabateans. Christian monks also used to live in the area, finding their shelter in caves carved into the stone. Several hiking trails climbing large numbers of steps will take you to scenic viewpoints of the springs, which flow in a series of waterfalls to pools of saltwater below, fringed by poplars and saltbush plants.
