ESRA Hike - Mount Horsham

Wednesday, 12 October 2022 at 6:45


ESRA Members NIS 155 | Non-members NIS 195



ESRA Hikes take place once a month from September to May and vary from easy, to moderate and hard. The hikes  are for early risers and are open to regular fit hikers, able to walk approximately 10 to 14 kilometers. 

Israel is truly a hiker’s paradise, from waterfalls and lush green mountains to caves and salt mountains, and even canyons in the desert.  Stepping onto a trail is one of the most rewarding feelings; it’s the promise of adventure, the acknowledgment of difficulty, the dedication to the final ascent. 

We will start at Mount Horsham and hike down towards Dahal Dalia. This is an idyllic setting of trees flowers and water. We then head towards Nahal Dalia and then on towards Nahal Tut. Nahal Tut is an archeological sight that was excavated when building road 6. The excavation exposed layers of the following periods the Iron age, the Romans, and the Mamluks. We will pass through streams so please bring sandals. We will finish the hike at Bet Shlomo.

This is a different hike to the Bat Shlomo that we did in the past.

Please look out for any last minute changes due to weather conditions.
