Take a telepherique to Mount Temptation in Jericho

Updated: Dec 30, 2018


Mount Temptation is the site where Jesus fasted for 40 days and where he was also tempted by the devil. Take the telepherique up to the stunning monastery, which also passes over one of the oldest settlements in the world...

It is hard to believe that this monastery is unpopular with the Greek Orthodox monks: there were only two on-site. The monk we spoke to was a holiday replacement for another monk, and he was clearly not happy to be there.
