Desert Floods in the Arava – This blog is for all these desert lovers, who were fortunate enough to enjoy rain and floods at the Arava. Water in the desert is one of the most exiting experience especially in dry desert like the Arava Valley. In the Incense and Spice Route Inn you are located next to few of the main routes and valleys which are filled with water streams during the rain.We had the opportunity, to experience beautiful floods in the Arava, when we stayed at the Incense & spice Route Inn, Bedouin style accommodation and camping in the desert. After the rain stopped , we went hiking to see the beautiful valleys flushed with water. We waited until weather alert insured it is safe to travel, and stayed only on safe territories.
