Postcard KING DAVID WATERFALL, Ein-Gedi Nature Reserve, Israel
 

The Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, which is situated on the shores of the Dead Sea, offers a variety of trails in different difficulty and interest levels. Nahal David (David Stream) trail provides an offer which cannot be refused: it is not too short and not too long and it includes an enchanting combination of classic desert views together with green vegetation, flowing water, waterfalls and even ibexes which one can get close to (up to a point). The first waterfall on the trail comes up right at the beginning, which means that it is almost obligatory to start with good dipping and splashing. Afterward we continue west along the stream without a fixed destination. One can just find a spot to stop at on the way and enjoy the water, and it is also possible, and even recommended to finish with the Dodim (Lovers) Cave. This part of Nahal David (David Stream) is not as busy with travelers as its lower part. The Dodim (Lovers) Cave itself is a romantic spot when all around it the sounds of the water trickling join with those of the birds’ chirping, with sunrays breaking in an abundance of colors and Maidenhair fern bushes decorating its walls
