“White Valley and Blue Spring” – Nature tour in the White Valley

Let’s set forth on a tour amidst agricultural terraces, walnut groves, burial caves carved into boulders, and beautiful blossoms, as we discover the secret charms of springtime in Jerusalem.

Along the northern reaches of Nahal Refa’im, between Ir Ganim and Givat Masua, we see a panorama of the Jerusalem hills and the White Valley. The white mountain ridge that overlooks the valley was “saved” from westward urban development, thus offering us scenic nature views within the municipal territory.


We will hear about a mysterious archeological site, biblical agricultural workers, and ancient tombs between the orchard groves and the mountain spring.
