Accessible from town via the Abu Jeefa pass, these wadis are the first step to the high mountains. Most treks pass through this area, but visitors rarely slow down to appreciate all that is to see. Exploring the area makes a nice and easy 1-2-day programme, a great alternative to Mt. Sinai. In fact, this is a much easier trek, involving only one steep climb at the beginning (half an hour instead of the 1.5 hours at Mt. Sinai!) and the rest of the walk is over more or less flat terrain and gentle ascents. There are a lot of interesting sights along the way, including Byzantine ruins, little canyons, water pools and beautiful Bedouin gardens.
