Short drive on Hwy 1 will bring us to St. George monastery observation on the bank of Wadi Qelt. The monastery is one of five that still function in its original Byzantine style. More then 1,500 years ago the Byzantine sponsored more then hundred monasteries flourishing the desert with thousand of monks. After quick lunch and bath stop, we will continue to one of the amazing places in Israel St. Sabas monastery "Marsaba". Driving steep road to Wadi Kidron is always a thrill but the observation on the monastery worst any inconvenient. From here we'll take the quickest way back to Jerusalem.
