Ma`ale Akrabim in Hebrew means Scorpions Pass. It is a steep twisted section of Route 227 (Northern Negev, not far from Dimona).
Map of the area:
I remember Trollstigen in Norway. It is known due to its steep incline and eleven hairpin bends up a steep mountainside. Well, Trollstigen has good marketing. I have drove on other less known and much more dangerous roads. With more hairpin bends and steeper inclines. Ma`ale Akrabim is one of them.
That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!
Here are several resources that I created to help travelers:
- Israel Trip Planner is the page that will help you to create your perfect travel route.
- National Parks And Nature Reserves page lists and put all national parks on the map. There is also a top list, information about ticket types and campsites.
- If you are looking for things to do, here are the pages for Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Sea Of Galilee, and Makhtesh Ramon.
- Wondering what events are there in Israel? Here is the Events And Festivals By Season guide.
