Havarim Cistern

 

Bor Havarim – Havarim Cistern

Bor Havarim (Chavarim Pit) is a group of underground Nabatean water cisterns. The cisterns collected runoff water in Wadi Havarim (Nahal Havarim) in the Negev. Ancient historians refer to them as hidden water resources along the Nabatean Incense Route. This is a perfect place to stop on your way to En Avdat National Park and Avdat National Park, or to begin a family friendly hike in Nahal Havarim.
