Rappelling in Israel – Nachal Kumran

Nahal Kumran is one of the most attractive and touristy streams for groups of families interested in a challenging experience of cliff surfing. The reasons that Nahal Kumran is very attractive to surfers is its location. The Qumran stream is the northernmost stream in the Judean desert and the closest to the center of the country.
