A great and unique way to reach the less known sites in the Judean Foothills (the “Shephelah”). Best if executed in the early spring (February-March) when everything is green and blooming! The tour will start by tracking the “Burma Road”. This dirt road enabled providing vital supplies to Jerusalem during the 1948 Israeli-Arab war. Especially challenging will be the steep “serpentines” where to this day only real 4×4 off-road vehicles can pass. We continue along the “Sculptures forest” to the top of Tel Tzora , where we view and review the Legacy of the mighty Biblical figure of Samson. At Tell Beth-Shemesh, we will get off the road to track a new and somewhat sensational discovery – the possible place where the ark of the covenant may have been placed.
