Where

Ein Gedi Botanical Garden, Jerusalem, Israel

Enjoy the beautiful and visually stunning landscapes from various strategically positioned lookout points.

Ein Gedi Garden, Featuring wild plants from the Ein Gedi and Dead Sea region, the vast array on display includes rare and endangered species. Entry to the garden is via the south road of the car park.

Walk through the garden via the marked trails. The plants are named on signposts, and visitors receive a booklet with information on all the plants displayed. In addition, visitors can prepare small bonfires to prepare tea infusions using native wild herbs.

The African Sycamore Fig tree is one of the largest trees in the botanical gardens, and also in the biblical sources. The trunk is covered in a furry coating to help protect against the dry climate. Most trees of this species are from tropical rainforest regions and have a smooth trunk. However, situated in the dry Middle East, the African Sycamore Fig tree developed this unique mechanism to prevent against the threat of dehydration.

Theatre Hall Area. Enjoy the cactus garden and stone statue display, with a lookout point featuring views to the south from the Ha’atakim cliffs, Mount Sodom, and the shores and sinkholes of the Dead Sea. Due to the receding waterline of the Dead Sea, ancient anchors were found in the sea bed. Some of these anchors are on display in this area.
