Level of Difficulty


Kipat Eshet

This trail includes a lot of scrambling over rocks, as well as breathtaking views of the Arava and the Edom Mountains.

The Trail

Follow the green trail until it meets the black trail. From that point, follow the black trail uphill to a lookout point that will give you a beautiful view of the Paran Plains, the Arava and the Edom Mountains. From there, follow the green trail downhill and back to the parking lot.

Getting There

From the Chetzbah Field School, travel south toward Moshav Paran. Turn right toward Moshav Paran and, before you reach the entrance to the moshav, turn left onto the dirt road marked with a green sign. Follow that dirt road to the trail head, where you can leave your vehicle.


Before setting out for your hike, make sure that you have enough water (at least 6 liters per person), a hat and comfortable shoes.

Be sure to check the weather forecast. Do not attempt this hike on hot days.
