The Jerusalem Hills can look like a very verdant, very romantic forest. Bar BaHar, a caférestaurant adjacent to Bar Giora and Nes Harim, is one of the best places to enjoy viewing the greenery, and getting there is a significant part of the experience. The road is winding and narrow, the Jerusalem Hills’ underbrush is beautiful and the restaurant isolated and uncrowded – unless you’re visiting on Saturday. Many bike riders stop off. The balcony overlooks the Nahal Sorek Preserve, and a Jewish National Fund information stand at the site is helpful for purposes of orientation.
Directions: Drive southeast from Ein Kerem along Road #386, or northeast from Zur Hadassah. Turn onto Road #3866 near Bar Giora, which leads to Nes Harim. Bar BaHar is located about 300 meters west of the intersection.
Yearim Hotel sits atop one of the highest peaks in the Jerusalem hills, fully immersed in nature’s charms. Your stay will take you on a journey through history to the most pure, unchanging corners found in Israel.
