Nahal Lotz


Nahal Lotz is formed between Mahmal Ridge and Lotz Mountains. The name of the river is derived from the Arabic word LOZ which means Pistachio in Arabic. Our tour begins in Arod Ascent on the western part of Ramon Crater and it follows the river until the Egyptian border. Along the route we will see many Pistacia Atlantia ( Elot in Hebrew ) trees that grows here and we will also discover: a green desert, lots of nature, remnants of ancient agriculture, water cisterns and ancient graves  and the most southern fort from  the Israeli period.
