Nahal Salvadora (the Salvadora Stream) is one of the most mysterious streams of the Judean Desert. It offers a lovely and surprising hiking experience.
The stream contains all the features that the other streams of the area provide despite being much shorter.
These include a huge waterfall, a spring, a beautiful cliff, a large rocky field, animal activity, rich flora, and more in an area of less than one square kilometer.
Trail length: 2 kilometers.
Hike duration: 2–3 hours.
Suitable for: families.
Note: The stream is named after the Salvadora Persica tree, which grows on the waters of the small spring in the ravine beneath the large waterfall.
Starting and ending point: Road 90 between Ein Gedi and Mitzpe Shalem. In a small kurkar stone parking lot across the road next to Km 251.
The suggestions that appear here regarding the trails are only our recommendations, and it should be noted those who use them do so at their own discretion and are responsible for themselves. The regional councils take no responsibility for the results.
