In the majestic cliffs of the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea, Ein Gedi National Park and Nature Reserve is a favorite destination for hiking, sunbathing, wildlife-watching and splashing in pools created by springs and waterfalls.

Click on the video to see a place saturated not only in natural beauty but also 5,000 years of archeological history. Ein Gedi is where the future King David took refuge from mad King Saul, and centuries later where rebels took refuge from Roman legions.
