The path continues onward among the trees. Here we can find numerous examples of the oasis vegetation of the Syrian-African Rift Valley, including giant milkweed (Calotropis procera, also known as the Sodom apple), gray-leaved cordia (Cordia sinensis) and the desert date (Balanites aegyptiaca). Around half a kilometer after the paths intersect, we can see on the left a cluster of Egyptian doum palm trees, which grow wild along the banks of the Nile and other rivers in Africa. At Ein Evrona, some eight kilometers north of Eilat, is a grove of doum palms that is considered to represent the northernmost limit of their distribution in the wild worldwide. These trees are easily recognizable as their trunks, and sometimes also their main branches, have a tendency to fork into two sections.
Around 350 meters further on the path reaches a dirt road. Here we turn left and follow this road for some 450 meters before turning left again along a gully that runs parallel to the one we walked through earlier (along the way we come to a sign that indicates that we have reached the halfway point of the route). From here we follow the path downhill through the trees until we find ourselves back at our starting point.
