When To Go
The best times to visit Palestine – and to hike in particular – are the spring and late fall. The summer months of June through September are usually very hot, and hiking can be unpleasant or even dangerous. By mid-October, temperatures in most places have cooled down enough to make for good hiking weather that usually lasts until the intense summer heat sets in around May. The winter months (January-February) can bring rain and muddy trails; but by March flowers are in bloom, making March-April the best period for walking.
