The Black Canyon trail

The Black Canyon trail (also known as Amram’s Pillars) starts off of highway 90 where there is a clearly marked turn about fifteen minutes north of Eilat. Drive for about fifteen minutes down the dirt road and you will get to a parking lot. The trail is not circular so make sure to use two cars and shuttle between the starting and ending point. Amram’s Pillars are two natural rock formations at the end of the short canyon. The hike then ascends up to Mount Amir and there are some spectacular views to be enjoyed at the peak of the mountain. When descending there are two options- either a mostly flat route that goes along the Israel Trail or a more interesting trail through a canyon filled with ancient copper mines and digging shafts. At the end of either of the two routes one will see the Black Canyon- not to be missed at any price- it is filled with gray and black granite rock formations, white limestone chalk and narrow passageways that are great fun to climb and slide through. The Black Canyon trail is a fantastic trail that is suitable for all the family and can be enjoyed in all seasons

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
