Hofira Scenic Lookout (Mitzpor Hofira)
Description: The roofed observation plaza affords a good view of the fields of Ein Yahav, the confluence of Nahal Nekarot and Nahal HaArava, Hatzera Ridge and Ma'ale Akrabim (“Scorpions Ascent”) in the west. The Edom Mountains in Jordan rise in the east; Jabel Haroun, where according to tradition Aaron, the brother of Moses, was buried, can be seen among them. There is a panoramic illustrative panel in the scenic outlook.
Directions: Turn from the Arava Road (Route 90) towards Ein Yahav, cross the moshav to the east gate and drive according to the signs along the Peace Route for about 2 km between the hothouses.
