This eco focused lodging is a great contributor to the local community. Come stay here to support the cause and meet some great people who are making an impact on their community! It is a short ride (40 NIS) from Hisham's Palace.

The Auja EcoCenter and Guesthouse was opened in October 2010 in Al Auja, just north of Jericho. The village of Al Auja and the surrounding valley is home to a unique and beautiful landscape-but people's More everyday lives are burdened with water scarcity and the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis. In close cooperation with the local people our center offers a variety of activities to experience the multifaceted cultural, environmental and political issues first hand. We welcome you to explore with us the unique Jordan valley ecology, sample delicacies prepared by Bedouin women, and listen to stories locals can tell you about their lives in this region. Our guesthouse has eleven private guestrooms, all with en suite bathrooms and air-conditioning, and five dormitory rooms that are suitable for families or student groups. The grounds have gardens, a roof terrace, and Bedouin tent areas for relaxing. Let us treat you like family at the guesthouse before you embark on a tour by one of our expert guides. A short cab ride from Jericho, the Auja EcoCenter is the best place to get an authentic experience of the Palestinian territories. Less
