Access and Facilities

From Tiberias take Route 91 north towards Rosh Pinna, turning left after about 12km towards Huqoq and the road dips down into the Ammud Valley after 2-3km. Park in a lay-by on the right and walk north into the gorge. An afternoon/evening visit is likely to produce the best birds.
