A slightly challenging route about 5 Km long that passes through mountains and lookouts.
Drive from Eilat on route 12 about 7 Km,then turn right to Mount Jehoram parking lot (there are signs).Park the car and start the hike by foot .Follow the Black route for about 2.5 Km through Mount Jehoram and its beautiful views to the summit of Mount Shlomo.(be careful-steep up hill!)
From the summit of Mount Shlomo there is a beautiful 360 degree view. We will return from the same way we came and pass by a "saddle" where Red trail split, this place in among the only places in the world where one step separates between 2 geological periods that separate about 500 million years. On one side is the White chalk and on the other side are the dark Granit rocks
This "saddle" is also called the "sayeret matkal" saddle' in memory of two "sayeret matkal" patrol soldiers (Yaron Bar David and Eran Ofer) who died navigating in the area.
You will keep going on the route and reach a lookout in memory of the soldiers, from where you follow the Black route back to the parking lot.
This hike requires 2 cars!
