#Pakal_Kafe: Ein HaDayag

Updated: Jan 13

re'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).

>>> So we @iKonnect decided to hop on this trend!

The story

Ein HaDayag is a gorgeous little pond, situated right near the Hula Reserve, close to the town of Yesod HaMaalah.


The natural pond is filled with cool refreshing water, sitting right beneath giant eucalyptus trees. The spot is a favorite for birdwatching lovers, as plenty of types of birds flock over the area, and sometimes stop to refresh in the cool waters.


What to expect?

The pond is filled with cool fresh water, and if you continue towards the end of the pond, you will find big catfish swimming around and plenty of little turtles sunbathing on the rocks.

There is plenty of shade all over, and it's a great spot to open up your Pakal Kafe and boil a nice hot cup of coffee to enjoy with a delicious picnic lunch.
