The entrance to Beit Kahil from Tarqumya is almost like stumbling across an ancient Incan citadel. Seconds away from the main road, a beautiful, semi-ruined, old stone farm with terraces and houses appears, nestled charmingly in the rich, green valley. The road then leads up the hill into the well-kept, healthy town of Beit Kahil, which is located just 7km northwest of Hebron. As Hebron is such a large city, Beit Kahil is very close to the neighbourhoods on its outskirts. But the difference is clear; Beit Kahil is much more relaxed, with pretty central avenues and a small cluster of shops.
