October 22: SECURITY WARNING for Walkers: sadly, a third incident of robbery was reported recently by the German Consulate on walking in the area around Mar Saba, located in an area with little to no presence of any security authority. At least two incidents took place in the spring this year. Walkers are advised to avoid this area (trail #22 in the Walking Palestine book) at the moment, especially if they walk without a local guide.
May 10: Please note an error in the map of trail 24 (Battir): the numbers on the map were scrambled up. Stefan apologizes. The right map is available as a PDF file by clicking here.
