The full list of the Rappelling programs offered can be viewed here
The Qumran gorge is where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls have been found. According to one of the theories, in the 1st century BC a religious hermit community of the Essenes had existed in Qumran, to whom these manuscripts probably belonged. We will undertake a trip to the hard-to-reach recesses of the Qumran community. A scenic trail rises to the canyon bed, which offers a panoramic and breathtaking views of the Dead Sea and the Jordanian Mountains. Descending the ropes on dry cascade waterfalls allows you to peek into the most hidden corners of the gorge. Air saturated with mineral salts, strengthens the nervous and the cardiovascular body systems. All this, combined with the history and unique nature of Qumran, serves as the best recipe for interesting, unusual and a very informative recreation.
