Basic Info:

A steep start to the day takes you up the hillside, heading SE back onto the plateau where seldom used lanes lead to the rim of the kilometre deep canyon of Wadi Hasa. Descend into it on paths down a rounded ridge passing some cave houses before following a wadi down to a small road which leads down passing between the impressive cliffs of Tor Taboun. Now on a track, continue down, zig zagging into the depths of the canyon to reach a small stream, palms and gardens. Continue through the gardens following the track through the river to Burbeita Hot Springs.
