Background on Via Ferrata activity in Manara cliffs and in general

Via Ferrata is the most common adventure sport in Europe in countries such as Italy, Spain, Andorra, Switzerland, Greece, and more. At the base of the activity, we walk on the edge of the cliff/mountain in a rocky area while we are secured to a steel cable and the equipment we wear. There are routes that last a whole week and more with high levels of difficulty, in which we will cover more than 1000 meters in one day with stunning views. In Israel, the branch is in its infancy. There are now routes of the Via Ferrata, one at Menara Cliff, which you will read about in this article; the second is the Via Ferrata in Gat Yanoh. The Via Ferrata in Gita Cliff and the third is the hardest and shortest of them all, the Via Ferrata in Abood. There is another Via Ferrata that is not open to the public and is inside Masada Reserve. More details about the Via Ferrata routes in Israel

Via Ferrata in Menara, here we start!

Menara Cliff Track The Convergence Stage

Meet at the parking lot, where we will receive a short briefing on what is expected of us. We will receive the professional equipment from the professional staff, who will also help us put on the equipment.

Menara Cliff The descent stage and viewing the landscape

We will start going down the path in an easterly direction between trees that will hide the view for us for about 3 minutes, after which we will reach a point where there is a fenced balcony, and the view opens up. The view that unfolds before us and especially below us is an impressive view of Kiryat Shmona, the Hula Valley, Mount Hermon, and the Golan Heights. On the horizon to the east, we will receive a short briefing on the landscape in front of us and continue a steeper descent than the one we passed, another 7/8 p⁰. Along the descent, there are many handrails and outposts to facilitate the execution; at the end of the descent, we meet at the entry point and the route of the end of the cable.

We start Hoya Prata in Menara – an ascent from section A along the cable.

At the starting point of Hoya Parta on Manara Cliff, we will receive a short explanation on how to use the equipment correctly and safely, and we will start the Hoya Parta route on Manara Cliff. Of course, after the descent, most of the route is uphill, partly steeper, partly less steep, and even level. We will cross two short, secure wooden bridges, which we will cross in a level direction.

Section B of the route – climbing Manara Cliff

Before we start this section, we can add to the experience a challenging and experiential climbing activity that will upgrade the activity and also extend the duration of the activity. At this point, there is the possibility of different climbing routes at levels ranging from very easy to the inexperienced and those with low ability to advance with a high level of difficulty.
If we did not perform a climbing activity, we would reconnect to the cable and climb another 20 meters in a very steep but not difficult section, thanks to many comfortable outposts. At the end of this section, we will find ourselves back on the balcony where we watched the view at the beginning of the descent phase.
Another small effort of 4 more minutes of easy and not very steep ascent will get us back to the parking lot.
