Walking To Jerusalem through 5400 Years of History
The hike to Jerusalem via the Judean Hills is a hike through a huge museum Every hill, every rock and path are silent witness to thousands of years of history whose influence on the world continues to this day.
The path covers historical sites of ancient cultures as well as existing live energetic populations of pleasant, open minded people of various religions and beliefs, Christian, Jewish, and Moslem.
You will find here open museums and memorial sites nestled in nature as though they had always been there since time immemorial.
