This walk will take us from Tequa through Wadi Jihar to the village of Rashaydeh, located about 20 km east of Hebron.  The wonderful desert hike descends into the spectacular Wadi Jihar, a deep limestone canyon that winds down into the desert. The hike from Tequa through Wadi Jihar will take about 4 hours, primarily on a rocky desert path with a descent and few small climbs. We will emerge from the valley and reach Rashaydeh village, before continuing walking towards the Bedouin tent just outside of Rashaydeh
