I’m planning a one-month retreat to the Ein Gedi area near the Dead Sea.
I’m going to spend time living in hostels as well as camping on the beach, which is free.
What do you recommend as far as backpacks go? Tents? I’ll be traveling in March. Keep in mind I’ll need to travel “ultra lite” style, sort of like those guys who do the Appalachian Trail.
If I rent a car, will I be able to find easy overnight parking in Ein Gedi? There’s parking at the Ein Gedi beach during the day. Can you leave a car parked overnight?
Is fresh produce readily available? I can live off of hummus, chicken, olives, and rice if not.
If any of you are Israelis and want to meet up, let me know. I’m going to detox (and will be spending lots of time on the beach and covered in dead sea mud) but of course will want to check out Tel Aviv, etc.
