“Kanyoning” is exploring the Canyon and going down through it using the technic of ropes what is known as rappelling in Israel entering a canyon who is only accessible is very exciting and challenging. As well obviously it requires skills of using the rappelling in Israel gear or services of someone who knows how to use ropes.
There is no activity in nature that can be compared to the excitement and the thrill that the canyon is giving to the people who are rappelling through them the activity is going like that.
The group enter the canyon and start going down drop after a drop along the canyon in every rappel we need to stop set up the ropes.
Again, every time we arrive at next rappel every canyon is a different story. The canyon is very much different from each other some canyon is short and has only 1/2 rappels to go down, and some have 50 rappels before coming out of it.
Some have small rappel and some have giant rappel some are deep and narrow some are wide some have running water in them and some are dry.
There are canyons you need to swim across many pools and use a dry suit like divers a specially in the European canyon that has cold running water through them.
In some of them, there is warm running water like the Canyons. In Jordan, some of the most amazing canyons are completely dark during daytime since they are so deep and narrow that there are no daylights in them and we must use a flashlight to move forward through them.
In Israel, there are 5 canyons in the Judean desert along the dead sea and another one in the northern part of Israel in the Golan Heights.
The southern canyon is dry except 1 of them the “Raahaf canyon” near Mazda south of the dead sea that. This canyon contains flood water in some years it is dry.
Since there are no floods running and filling it the other canyon in the south are “Qumran which attracts a lot of tourist since of the dead sea scrolls they were found in a cave.
