Someone told me and my 2 new traveling partners about a lovely walk in the Gholan heights so we decided to do it.
One of the first things we saw on our walk were the little Hyraxes who live all over the place. They are little animals found around the Golan Heights that share 90% of their DNA with elephants. They are actually quite ugly if you ask me.
We walked through valleys and along the mountains to the White Waterfall which was not supposed to be very far away. It was a lovely walk to get there.
The rock of the waterfall was white and we thought it would be a short walk to the Black Waterfall as well-they were close to each other on the map. Unfortunately it ended up being another 2 hour walk before we reached it, and another hour of walking before we reached the road. By that time we were all hungry and thirsty as we didn’t take a lot of water as we thought the whole hike would only take about 2 hours.
When we eventually reached the road we caught a ride back to the car and started heading back to Nazareth.We drove along the bottom of the Galilee, crossing the Jordan River on our way to Nazareth. The last hour back we drove through pouring rain. Rain was pouring down the street in rivers and made driving very difficult.
We made a lovely dinner and had some red wine when we finally got back to the hostel.
