The Alek ruins are beautiful scenery set in the north of Israel near the small city of Zichron Yaakov, on route to Haifa.
It is a path, in the forest designated for the entire family, ending at a pool of water, an ancient pool with running water.
The path is part of the grand “Israel Trail” path.
It is believed that the name “Alek” stems from the Arabic name of “leaches” that had swarmed the water of the pool.
The place had served formerly as an Arabic village with a Mosque, but had been I ruins for several years.
Old relics and ruins had been dug up in the area but are – yet- closed for visitors.
The route takes the family through forest, flowers, beautiful scenery and mainly; nature.
