I spent in lencois 2 days of hiking. the views there are quite similar to those of the golan heights and the upper galil.
on the first day i went on a horse-back riding trip with a group of israelis i met on the bus. i was amazed of their incapability and unwillingness to haggle with the guide, so eventually we paid twice the price it should cost.
but still, it was fun - we got to a special fall, where it is possible to slide down the fall into the pool, like in a water-park. on the way back we saw ´gakhliliyot´, and it was very beautiful.

on the second day i decided to go alone to look for a tour in the agencies. but before i stepped out of the hotel, i was told that someone is looking for me on the phone. that someone appeared to be from some travel agency, and we agreed that i will get to their office as soon as i´m ready to go. 5 minutes later a guide from the agency appears at the door! it seems that the tour is leaving NOW, and that everyone on it are waiting in a minibus outside for me to decide. now, since i wanted to leave that night on the night bus, i had to clear the room before i leave (by the way, i still didn´t had an idea about where is the tour and how much it costs). so i told the guide ´10 minutes´, and after five (a new record for me!), my big and small backpacks were ready to go.

we went to different places: a big waterfall with a calm pool at the bottom; three caves, on of them with stalagmites and stalactites; and at last - a mountain, where we sat to watch the sundown.

at night i ate dinner in a restaurant with some guys from the tour, and on 23:30 i took the 6 hours bus to salvador.
