4,000 years ago Abraham walked from his birthplace in Turkey to the Negev Today’s visitors can trace the Palestinian section of Abraham’s footsteps on the Masar Ibrahim al-Khalil. To walk it is to enter deep into the history, antiquities, countryside, and rural village life of Palestinian people. Visitors will experience the peaceful landscapes of terraced olive groves in the northern highlands, the varieties of plants and wildlife – especially the “Palestinian bird flyway”, distinct eco-systems, and geological formations. They might examine ancient holy sites, take meals with a Palestinian family, or sleep in a Bedouin tent.
For photographic galleries of numerous sites along the trail, maps, information about tours, guides, and help planning a visit to any part or the entirety of the trail, see Masar Ibrahim al-Khalil and Abraham Path Initiative. The trail is a joint project of Rozana, Siraj Center and thethe Palestine Wildlife Society ..
Recognized internationally as a leading journal for geographers and travelers, the “National Geographic” selected the Masar Ibrahim path at the
#1 new walking trail in the world for the year 2014!
As an integral member of the Masar Ibrahim initiative, Rozana takes great pride in this honor.
