Plans of a resort Hotels complex in Timna park

14 October 2007

There are plans to build a large private resort hotels complex inside the Timna park, 25Km north of the city of Eilat, on the southern tip of Israel. These plans might have a negative effect on this wonderful park, changing its landscape forever.

The Timna park has a rare mix of outstanding nature and geology displays, such as the mushroom and “Solomons pillars”, and unique historical sites of ancient Egyptian copper mining from the times of the Exodus.
