ESRA hike in the Western Galilee

ESRA Hike in the Western Galilee
We start at Keshet (rainbow) Cave, a few kilometers from Rosh Hanikra near the ‎Israel-Lebanon border. It is Israel’s largest natural arch formed from a cave which attracts ‎many rappelling enthusiasts.  ‎

We continue on down Nahal Namer, a steep wadi with many boulders to negotiate on our way. ‎We then hike uphill to Kibbutz Hanita on the border, established in 1938 as part of the Tower ‎and Stockade Operation. Hanita was a special project led by Yitzhak Sadeh. To see this Kibbutz ‎is in itself worth the hike.‎

Due to the distance it will require an early start.‎

‎7+ kms.  Moderate to hard hike, only suitable for regular hikers

NB ESRA hikes are suitable for people in good health, who can hike on rough paths, sometimes scrambling over rocks and boulders.  We reserve the right to refuse participation on the hike to any person who does not come properly equipped or is not physically capable of making the distance.

Hikers should come properly prepared for each hike:  plenty of water (2 litres per person in normal weather, at least 3 litres per person if it’s hot), good walking boots or shoes, hat, sunscreen and food for breakfast & lunch in a backpack.  Walking poles optional, but useful.
