#Pakal_Kafe: Ein Ampi

Updated: Jan 13

Here's an interesting fact about Israelis - They like to take a pakal kafe with them on hikes in nature, or when they visit their nearby ma'ayan (spring). (or sometimes use them at home!)

Why? Do you ask? Well, simply because there is nothing more Israeli than enjoying the outdoors with a nice steaming glass of fresh coffee (*Don't worry, there is always emergency tea for the non-coffee drinkers).

The story

Ein Ampi, also known as Ein Eucalyptus, is a wonderful little pond, surrounded by big shady eucalyptus trees. The pool is surrounded by descending rock steps, looking a bit like an amphitheater, hence the name.

What to expect?

The water in the pool is 1.5 meters deep, allowing you to jump in for a refreshing swim. The lower steps are submerged in the water, you can sit on the steps inside of the cool water. The water is filled with little fish that will give you a natural pedicure for your feet.
