This caving expedition leaves from Jerusalem, to take you high over the Judean Desert canyons and deep below them. Our destination here is Haritun Cave, a labyrinth of low passages that is exciting and fascinating to explore. The man-made cave is a network of dwellings carved into the mountainside; along the tour, we will teach you its incredible story. The tour also includes a beautiful hike over the Tekoa Canyon.
