What you’re going to do

Only available in November 2022

This 17km-long walk starts at the village of Rummana (in Arabic means pomegranate).

Rummana, located around 17km northwest of Jenin, is the most northern village of the West Bank. The village is located on a hill slope which conceals traces of ancient remains, including cisterns and caves carved into the rock. The village is well known for the abundance of its olive trees, some of which are said to date back to the Roman times.

Further on, the trail leads towards a hill overlooking the town of Ti’innik, located just next to the ancient Canaanite site of Tell Ta’annek, strategically positioned along the ancient trade route – Via Maris. From there, colorful fields of Marj Ibn Amer (or Jezreel Valley) are clearly seen in the background. Continuing, we will encounter a village called Ta’ennek where you will be welcomed and hosted by their village consulate and some local people. 

The destination is the town of Burqin, a small agricultural village famous for its 4th century Church of St. George. The church is considered one of the oldest churches in Palestine. It was built to commemorate the spot where Jesus Christ had stopped in his path in order to heal the ten men who suffered from leprosy.

Walkers will have the chance to purchase fresh fruit, olive oil and other locally produced organic products.
