The government of Israel is advancing a plan to build a cable car in Jerusalem from Derech Hebron road to the Old City. The cable car would dramatically change the landscape south of the Old City including the areas of the Hinnom Valley, Mt. Zion, Silwan/City of David, the skyline and the landscape of the Old City walls.
We are conducting a walking tour of the Hinnom Valley, following the route of the planned cable car and the ancient landscapes it will undoubtedly alter. The tour will reveal the cultural wealth of the valley over which the cable car is slated to be built, its’ importance to the history of the city and the ancient traditions associated with the place. The tour will also present the latest plans for the area including a suspension bridge and the cable car and the political and economic interests that underlie them.
The length of the tour is two hours.
