The full list of the Rappelling programs offered can be viewed here
The Tur canyon is the second highest of those permitted for rappelling in Israel. This tour is suitable for confident but lazy climbers. The canyon approach takes only about 20 minutes on a fairly comfortable terrain. Rappelling in the Tur canyon includes descending from 3 cliffs — of 55, 60 and 80 meters of height, respectively. Breathtaking views and landscapes of the Dead Sea will accompany the tourist throughout the entire trip. Despite its seeming simplicity, Nahal Tur is famous for its elegance and Martian landscapes — steep walls, whitewashed by the streams, and sharp boulders at the edges. Reaching highway No. 90 after the last descent will take about an hour.
