Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil is Palestine’s long distance cultural walking route. Extending 330 km from the village of Rummana in the northwest of Jenin to Beit Mirsim southwest of Al-Haram al-Ibrahimi (Ibrahimi Mosque) in Hebron. The route passes through more than fifty cities and villages where travelers can experience the legendary Palestinian hospitality.
The route is part of the longer Abraham Trail that connects the places where the prophet lived, spread over 1,200 kilometers beginning in from the Mesopotamian city of Harran in southern Turkey to Abraham’s tomb in Hebron (al-Khalil).
Over 5 days, travelers will experience sections of this route (Masar Ibrahim), hiking and biking from the green hills of the northern West Bank passing through the desert south of Jericho to the holy city of Jerusalem. Actively traveling through the varied landscapes, biodiverse areas, archaeological remains, religious sites, and modern day lively villages, travelers experience rich Palestinian culture and heritage.
Palestinians, like their neighboring Arabs, are known for their welcoming warmth and friendliness, important values associated with Abraham (Ibrahim). There is plenty of opportunity to have valuable encounters with local communities who share the generosity of their ancestors along the way, often over a meal of delicious Palestinian cuisine. The food boasts a range of vibrant and flavorsome dishes, sharing culinary traits with Middle Eastern and East Mediterranean regions.
