Lahav Forest

Lahav Forest

Surrounding Kibbutz Lahav, the Lahav Forest extends south of the Judean Plains beyond the Beersheba Basin. Despite of the fact that the forest enjoys no more than an annual average rainfall of 300 mm., it grows boldly against the desert landscape which surrounds it.

Keren Kayemeth Le’Israel - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF ) began planting the Lahav Forest in 1952 and expanded it at the end of the sixties, so that today it covers more than 27,000 dunams (6,750 acres or 2,700 ha.). After the rains, the Lahav Forest is covered with edible pine mushrooms and primroses which grow profusely at the foot of the pines.

KKL-JNF has built in the forest many recreation areas equipped with picnic tables, water, children`s playgrounds and sports facilities. Special tables designed for the use of the disabled have been installed in the forest as well. Parking bays and easy to use access paths have been built by these tables. In addition, KKL-JNF has established a fire observation tower in the forest.

Visitors to the Lahav Forest may explore the many, archaeological sites which were discovered in its area. The attractions included in these archaeological sites prove that they were inhabited from the Bronze era until the time of the Second Temple.
