Story through
The ancient Nabatean city of Mamshit was an important station on the Incense Trade Route of Antiquity. Today the site of Mamshit is wonderfully reconstructed. It includes streets and wonderful arched structures, two impressive entrances- one with a mosaic floor and the other with marble columns which hold a preaching platform. In this city a large house which was preserved marvelously was reconstructed and in it was discovered the greatest treasure of coins ever to be found in Israel- 10,800 silver coins which were put here during two hundred years, and also a stable that could contain 16 horses. The city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

There is no need to walk along all of Mamshit Stream’s 18 kilometers in order to enjoy the views that it offers. A short and modest 1.5 kilometers trail will introduce you to the best that it has to offer. Mamshit Stream, named after the ancient Nabatean city of Mamshit, starts its course east of Dimona. On its way south-west Mamshit Stream passes by ancient agricultural terraces and further on it features two dams which were probably built by the Nabateans during the Roman period (another dam was built during the British Mandate, in the beginning of the 20th century). As it continues, Mamshit Stream goes into a narrow canyon near the Mamshit National Park and then meets with Khatira Stream. Toward its end Mamshit Stream also creates a beautiful canyon. The Mamshit Stream trail is marked in red and it includes the stream’s dams.
