David’s Waterfall

At the edge of the Judean Desert, a stunning water feature can be found not far from the edge of the Dead Sea. Known as David Waterfall, water drops 120 feet (36 meters) into a shallow pool. Entry to the pool is forbidden. 

The waterfall is located about a mile’s (1.5 km) walk from the entrance of the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve. Along the way, there are several smaller waterfalls, cascades, and pools, all flowing from the Nahal David (David River). From the foot of the waterfall, you can continue on another path that brings you to the small Dudim cave located just above the head of the waterfall.
