3km (White Waterfall)






All year

Nahal El Al

Nahal El Al, is a perennial stream located in Ramat Hagolan in the area of Eliad. The route is famous for its 2 waterfalls, the Black and the White waterfalls. The color of the waterfalls are named after the type of rock seen in each area. The Black waterfall is named after the black basalt rock over which it runs. The white waterfall runs over a chalky white stone and is named accordingly.

There are a few different routes one can do to reach these waterfalls. The shortest is a 1.5km walk to the black waterfall and back (Park at Moshav Avnei Eitan). Reaching the white waterfall will take you longer and is about a 3km hike with a steep climb back at the end. One can also see both waterfalls together making it a 4.5km walk. One can swim in the pools of both waterfalls, the white waterfalls pool is bigger and generally more impressive. There is not much shade going down towards the waterfalls,so keep this in mind on hot summer days
