Shaver Yegur - last moments of a rare bloom • Go for a walk on Pesach

Shaver Yegur, also known as Etak Carmel, is a magical corner of nature during the flowering season which is still taking place this month (April 2024) and is about to end very soon. Go for a walk in the Holy of Holies!

How do you get to the place?

Immediately after the turn to Nesher City there is a turn to the Country Club and after the square turn to the dirt path that ends up at Kibbutz Yegor. In the northwest of the dirt path, there is a moderate ascent through a flow track to the side of the mountain through a grove of tall cacti.

Here - you have arrived!

The dark side - Shaver Yegor

The Yagor fault is a geological extension of the Syrian-African fault in Israel. It passes through Yakneam and over Yegur, Nesher, Neve Shanan, northwest of the port of Haifa and ends a few kilometers into the sea. The entire area is enclosed by a fence and is used as a pasture for cows. It is not recommended to hike up due to several weak points up the mountain. In the hills there is "ballit movement" " - a geological concept that describes subsidence and ground movements.

Avoid entering caves

In the dangerous part of the ascent, there are several caves, some of which are covered - needless to say, entering them is dangerous. In general - entering unknown caves is dangerous due to the various bacteria, parasites and ticks that may be in them or in this case the risk of an avalanche. On very rainy days the fenced area is extremely dangerous due to water falls and landslides.

Final recommendations

Remember to wear high shoes, take enough water and be careful of snakes during this period, especially during this period.
Final recommendation - there is a route in the kibbutz that is quite steep but very impressive.

happy holiday and a pleasant trip
