Trek through Avdat National Park, a deep canyon near the World Heritage Site of Avdat, known for its picturesque natural springs. The canyon and its trails veer through a dry river valley in the arid Negev desert, and as evidence shows, were once inhabited by ancient Nabateans. Christian monks also used to live in the area, finding their shelter in caves carved into the stone. Several hiking trails climbing large numbers of steps will take you to scenic viewpoints of the springs, which flow in a series of waterfalls to pools of saltwater below, fringed by poplars and saltbush plants.

Avdat National Park reviews
We spent a few hours exploring the ruins. The visitors centre was great, the lady was friendly and spoke good English. She put on a movie about the site in English and gave lots of helpful advice...

Can't pass by this place without stopping there for at least one hour walk. And if you have more time, then take the longer path. Don't miss it!

Truly magnificent Nabatean fortress with layers of ancient history. There is a parking up on the hill to save you from all the climbing. For that, you need to get a one-time parking ticket at the ticket office for free. There is no water pipes on top of the hill, so it’s important to pack enough water with you, especially in the summer. All the picnic tables and bathroom is at the entrance to the park (no benches or bathroom on top, of course). Great place to visit with kids.
So much to see in such a small area. Much history and eras featured here. Signage in the park is very limited as are the explanations so make sure you bring a tour guide and/or watch the video at the entrance. We saw some kids doing a scavenger hunt. Wish we would have some that too.
