Hike Description

  • Canyoning in the Zavitan - Golan Heights Israel

One of the most beautiful rappelling adventures in Israel is the Black Canyon/ Gorge (also known as the “Nakik HaShahor”). The Black Gorge is called “black” because it does not get the sun’s rays most of the day, a fact which makes the canyon a wonderful place to pass a hot summer day.
The trip begins at the Yehudia Reserve in the Golan Heights. We’ll hike into the volcanic canyon and rappel 3 waterfalls into the water! Heights: 3, 30 and 25 meters.
Get ready to get wet! You’ll have to swim in amazing natural pools.
