#Pakal_Kafe: Geyser

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!

The story

This geyser is located in the North of Israel. It's a small little pool that even in the winter is warm! This is a perfect place to go for a swim during the winter and keep warm!

What to expect?

There are two pools one warm and one cool. The stream of water empties into the two pools, but the second pool has another stream flowing into it from a pipe. The water was found while they were drilling in the Golan Heights. The cold water flowing from the stream and the hot water bursting from the pipe make for a weird feeling. There are no benches or shade but plenty of rocks to sit on!
