Between Mount Sdom and the Haatakim (shifts) Cliff at the Dead Sea, there is a plane consisting of white marl earth that has two famous streams running through it, Wadi Pratzim and Wadi Sdom. The streams have formed a branching network of narrow, meandering canyons that are great fun for cyclists. 

The route passes through the narrow, convoluted Wadi Pratzim, passes on the way next to the flour cave that has been blocked for many years by a local landslide, but which used to be an impressively beautiful cave. There is a climb to the flat Amiaz Plain, from which one climbs to the peak of Mount Sdom to see an exciting vista, before descending back down the meandering Wadi Sdom.
