#Pakal_Kafe Ein Shir
Updated: May 2
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).
>>> So we @iKonnect decided to hop on this trend!
Ein Shir is a man-made spring that is found in #Karnei_Shomron. The spring is named after a young member of the community who passed away, Yuval Hagar. The local youth community built the pool in the shape of a guitar because Yuval loved to play and sing. Hence the name "Ein Shir" Shir in Hebrew means song.
What you can expect
The pool is not very large. It's the perfect size for a quick dip after lunch on a hot day but not too good for a full swim! There is a bench and picnic table and lots of shade for you to relax, lay out a picnic, or fire up your #pakal_kafe.
What you need to know!
This place can get pretty cold in the winter, make sure you bring warm clothing.
Payment & hours: Free and unlimited hours
Distance from the parking lot: Nearby
Best season to visit: All year long
Family-friendly? Yes (stairs)
There will be a turn-off of Road 55 into the Yeshuv Karnei Shomron. At the first traffic circle, take the first exit about 300 meters down the road you will reach your destination!
Parking is on the side of the road and you will see the staircase on the other side of the street to go to the spring. The walk is less than a minute with a few steps along the way!
