Hiking can be one of the best activities to explore an area and experience its landscape first hand, and the Himit abu Dableh trail is no exception.
The hike begins from Beit al Fannan heading north through local village roads, passing by several farms, homesteads, and olive groves. The first checkpoint is a small and humble mosque with a natural groundwater well just outside. Take a few minutes to rest and cool off with a splash of refreshing water.
The trail then winds through meadows, Mediterranean rolling hills, and finally up to a plateau offering unmatched views, before slowly descending into the valley below for a quick tea and lunch break. After the break, trek back to Beit al Fanan.
This hike is perfect for almost anyone! Besides the beautiful scenery, there’s also a lot of flora and fauna, including wild turtles depending on the season and weather.
