Walking on high at Etgar-Bahar Rope Park in Kibbutz Sasa

Etgar-Bahar is the largest rope park in Israel. It began as a project for kids of the kibbutz but was developed further when its potential was realized. The main attractions are a high trail with 16 challenging bridges 3 to 10 meters above ground for children aged 9 years and above (minimum height 1.35 meters) and adults, an omega, and a 10-meter climbing wall. There is also a medium trail for children 6 to 9 years of age and a children’s trail for 3 to 6-year-olds with a mini-rope park.

Time: Reckon on about 2 hours.

Directions: Enter “Sasa” into Waze and follow the signs once you are inside the kibbutz. There is a parking lot outside the rope park.

Admission. The park opens at 9.00 a.m. and the last admission is at 1.00 p.m. It is closed on Shabbat. There are shaded picnic tables outside the park. There is a kiosk selling drinks and snack foods. It is advised to check before coming as the place may close because of the weather or for private groups. Prices vary from 130 NIS which includes a zipline and climb to 80 NIS for younger children. There is a 20 NIS charge for adults accompanying children. Discounted prices are available through their website. Their phone number is 050 306 9922. This is their website.

Public transport: There is a frequent bus between Nahariya and Safed that stops at the Sasa Interchange. From here it is a 900-meter/11-minute walk to the kibbutz.
