This is very interesting to see and there are trails in the area if you are interested in some desert hiking. We were not able to enter the monastery because it was only open to pilgrims but seeing the monastery from the outside was also well worth the trip. We drove here on our own, not with a tour group.
The monastery is a breathtaking construction in the rocks deep down in a valley. We stopped by on our way from Bethlehem to Jericho and the Dead Sea. It is absolutely worth going there. If you would like to walk all the way down to the monastery, it, of course, will require a lot more time than just passing by... 更多
The monastery is amazing from the outside. The road to get to it is a little demanding, since it's very steep. However, it takes around 15 minutes walking to get to it. Is highly recommended to see a different scenario from Israel
We hired a car and drove to St Georges on Christmas Eve. As soon as we got out of the car we were mobbed by vendors selling souvenirs, they also tried to sell us donkey rides to the monastery which is several hundred meters down in a deep gorge. We said no very firmly, but a guy with a donkey... 更多
Came here otw to Amman for flight home. Drop by at a look out point for breathtaking view of an Impressive cliff hanging greek monastery where it was thought that Elijah hid in a cave and was fed by ravens. Nice! If only we had time for picnic. Heard it's open to pilgrims.
Anything I write or describe about the view from the monastery once you finally arrive after a rather challenging trip down into the gorge and back up to the monastery, could not do justice to what you will be able to see, especially on a clear day. You can see the Dead Sea to the south and Jerusalem to the... 更多
We drove up to wadi qilt where you get the view seen in the photograph above. It is quite a spectacle nestled in a deep valley in the dessert. I have to say I was not prepared for the sight as we climbed up from the road. Not sure how you would get here if not on a tour but... 更多
The guide took us there as a surprise on the Massada/Dead Sea tour. The sudden view of an ancient monastery in the gorge is just so beautiful, it gives you pause. Very solemn site, frozen history, yet still functional today. Mind boggling how this structures were erected in the 6th century and survived unscathed. You see local vendors at the... 更多
While we did not go into the monastery as it's a long walk, you can see the site from a nearby mountain, and see where Jesus wandered in the desert and was tempted by the devil. Truly a marvelous location.
we have traveled the waddi, and entered a peaceful and ancient monastery. If you are hiking in the area, you must visit. DO NOT forget to bring long clothing in order to enter the place.
