Less than an hour’s drive from the busy and noisy center of Jerusalem hides an amazing natural gem. There, you’ll find serene desert silence, disturbed only by the sound of water rushing through a gorge.
Wadi Qelt is a stream that runs from the northwestern slopes of the Judaean Desert just outside Jerusalem and down to the city of Jericho. It’s one of the biggest and only sources of running water in the Judean Desert.
