We used our “Green Pass” to enter Ein Gedi.
It is a lush oasis in an otherwise barren landscape.
There are a series of waterfalls up the main gorge, many of which were being enjoyed by bathers.
The area is renowned for its wild life but with the exception of birds (notably the lovely local starlings), we did not see any anything – probably because there were so many people there. However, there are other longer walks in the park away from the stream where it is probably more likely to see the local wild residents.
Definitely worth a visit if you are staying at the Dead Sea. We also visited the nearby botanical gardens which were stunning (and free).
