Jordan Valley & Shilo
We should be pretty clued up by now so the chase is on. We ascend to a spectacular look out, to see where the Children of Israel encamped before crossing the River Jordan, led by the Levites holding the Ark aloft. This is the glorious moment when Joshua ben Caleb led the people into the Promised Land. Following our jeep adventure, cable rides, walk in the desert, swim in the Dead Sea…a short ‘camel expedition’ back in time should be a breeze? Hopefully, we can pick up further clues to where our trail next leads? After an appetising snack we should feel refreshed to journey on. Our trail takes us through the Jordan Valley, then west towards the ancient capital of Israel in Shilo. Indiana Jones would be proud of our progress as we carefully analyse interesting ruins aiming to verify the resting place of the Ark in the Tabernacle of Shilo. Learn of amazing insights that could dramatically impact upon the actual shape of Israel’s future. The Ark has left its legacy, and we will endeavour to uncover its full meaning. Our next enquiry takes us close to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Have we really traversed so much of Israel already?
We yet have two more nights in our next hotel, near the sea. For now, our evening dinner awaits!
