Nahal Katlav

Archaeology and History

Nahal Katlav is a stream in the vicinity of the Jerusalem Corridor.
The stream is located in the eastern part of the Soreq River Reserve, west of the summit of Mount Giora and about 2 km east of Moshav Bar Giora.
The name of the stream is derived from the Katlav (Arubutus) trees common to the area.

Near Moshav Bar Giora there is a spring called "Ein Giora," from which the stream descends steeply about 2 km to Nahal Sorek, and, in the river, there are two more springs.
Ein Katlav, which is located on the slope of the stream, and Ein Dayr al-Shaykh, both flow from a cave on the western side of the stream.
Where the streams meet at Nahal Sorek is the building of the Bar Giora Railway Station. It is an operational station with a double railway track for trains, and in the past, there was a water supply facility for steam locomotives. The water came from Ein Giora.

There are guided tours therein.
