2. Tour that you will not forget in the next 10 years.

The canyon with somewhat thrilling name Black Gorge (in Hebrew Nakik Shachor) is safely hidden from curious eyes in the depths of sun burned yellow hills of the Golan Heights. Don't let this name to confuse you; the canyon got it because of its dark basalt rocks. This is the real "black pearl" of the Israeli nature!
Here you can find everything to strike your eyes and please your soul. There are various flowers with bright shiny colors, bushes with wild blackberries and figs, murmuring springs and noisy waterfalls, bringing their waters from the mountains all year round. There are also fish and funny crabs swimming in pools and little lakes, and, of course, the bizarre basalt formations that add originality and beauty to the canyon.
You will see with your own eyes all this nature's wealth and splendor, and at the same time try the popular and unique kind of activity – water canyoning! You will descend on the rope into the rough sparkling waterfalls up to 30 meters high! You can jump from the rocks into the water pools, get a sunbath sitting in the lake, and get a massage standing under the powerful water streams.
By the end of the trip, after a short climb up to the hills you will discover a breathtaking view on the Sea of Galilee, Upper Galilee mountains and Golan Heights. And we assure you – this journey will become one of the most vivid impressions from your Israeli vacation!
