Last Saturday we hiked the Carmel Mountains and today I wanted to share several photos from that hike.

Map of the area:

In the background, you can see Haifa University. We parked nearby and started walking.

As you can see there are already many blooming flowers:

Flowers attract butterflies:

You can see the sea and the coast line from the Carmel Mountains. And in clear weather you can even see Hedera power station (in the upper left corner):

New neighborhood construction next to the University:

Another bonus of coming early (besides the cooler weather) is eagles. Hai Bar Carmel is located not far and many eagles after healing and released to nature, come back to the Carmel Mountains.

I always thought it’s too hot for tulips in Israel.

This was a short hike, about two hours long. But, nonetheless, we saw the nature at its best. The Spring is already here, the flowers are blooming and the weather is nice. I hope these photos will make you want to take a hike. 

That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
