Nahal Me’arot, which is spread over 600 hectares on the western slopes of the Carmel, is one of the most fascinating geological and anthropological spots in the region. Not many people know this, but it is an official UNESCO heritage site, and is an important place to visit to learn about the region’s ancient and modern cultures.

The river has become a favorite among hikers who love going into the caves there, which clearly were used for habitation in ancient times. From excavations carried out on site, archeologists have found remains that prove there was ancient human activity inside the caves 500,000 years ago.
