Our Judean Desert Jeep Tour with guaranteed departure every Thursday will take you on a magical expedition through the Judean Desert. You will depart from Jerusalem and travel through the Mt. Scopus Tunnel towards the desert. Prepare for a bumpy yet beautiful ride. Immerse yourself in the Judean wilderness and see a side of the desert that you can only experience from a Jeep.
Your ultimate Judean desert journey will start at a Bedouin family camp, where you will learn about the culture and traditions of this fascinating nomadic desert tribe. Departing from the camp, you will head to a water cistern and learn about how water is stored in the desert. Then, it’s time to put your legs to work and climb up to Jabal Montar, believed to be the site of the biblical scapegoat ceremony (Azazel in Hebrew) in which a goat was carried out from the temple and cast out in the desert, carrying with it the sins of the community. After another thrilling ride, you will stop at an observation point for a lookout at the 1,500-year-old Mar Saba Monastery. After gazing out at the impressive monastery, you will enjoy a coffee, tea, and cookie break. At the next observation point, you’ll take in panoramic views of the Dead Sea before heading back to Jerusalem with new impressions and unforgettable memories.
