Inquire Booking

Every Thursday at 9:30am

Join us for an exceptional Indiana Jones crawling experience in the 3-D maze of the 2nd biggest Israeli cave. Book with Wild-Trails for a spectacular experience.

The Adventure:

This expedition will set you up with a rush of adrenaline going above and below the Judean desert landscape and will teach you the incredible historical facts and story of Haritun Cave, which is a network of dwellings carved into the mountainside. The cave is a labyrinth of low passages and so it is easy to get lost, but have no fear… our professional leaders know every tunnel and hall.
The team will walk above the Tekoa canyon passing the Byzantine laura monastery, which was abandoned by the monks a long time ago, reaching the tablet stones and entering the cave from the side of the cliff.  You will then be geared with caving equipment (helmets and head lights).
At that point, our team will no longer be responsible for the flood of emotions that will invade your bodies and minds impacting your lives like no other experience.

This historical and surprising adventure will carve memories to last you for a lifetime.

Just like Indiana Jones, this exploration journey will make or break you. You will uncover your capacity to handle very tight and closed up spaces and maybe find your calling during your breathtaking traveling journey.

  • Guidance.
  • A 2-way satellite communication device for any kind of emergency event that might happen (will be held by the trip leader).
