Nahal Akrabim

Nahal Akrabim is a long and fairly difficult trail and those who persevere reap the benefits of the stream found at the end of the trail. The stream is seasonal and passes between HaMakhtesh HaKatan (The Small Crater) which is a geological erosion landform in the Negev and Ma’ale Akrabim (Scorpion Ascent). There is a rather steep descent on the trail of about seven kilometers. The trail take about five hours and along the way hikers get to enjoy features such as canyons, narrow crevices, stunning rock falls, deep cisterns, high cliffs, escarpments caused by erosion, and more. At the end of the trail the Nahal Akrabim pours into Nahal Zin. The majority of the trail is not difficult but there are parts that require effort and an overcoming of fear of heights. One should be careful not to come at certain times in the winter when there is a danger of floods. The trail is not circular and a vehicle should be left at the finish point by the Zin Spring.

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.
