Festival at Mount Amasa

Mount Amasa is a cooperative ecological village located at an altitude of approx. 850 meters above sea level, at the edge of the Yatir Forest – the largest planted pine forest in the country.

The special view from Mount Amasa reaches many parts of the Dead Sea Land and, on clear days, you can even see Masada protruding over the horizon.

Mount Amasa is home to a warm, qualitative community that emphasizes the education of values, love of the country, and a significant vision to make the Negev desert flourish and bloom.

In recent years, the community of Mount Amasa has experienced entrepreneurial fruition. This covers many areas, including: art and creativity, body and soul treatments, challenging trips, tours with fascinating stories in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority, local culinary art, and more…
