The name Duma means calmness. Indeed, when you pass through this agricultural village its peaceful atmosphere absorbs you.
Leaving Duma the trail winds through Wadi Diba’ (Wadi of the Hyenas) and through several pleasant olive orchards on its way to Mughayir, a Palestinian village whose name means, roughly, the changing one, due to its location on the border between the arid climate of the Jordan Valley and the Mediterranean climate of the Palestinian highlands.
Descending from Mughayir to the Ein Samia Valley, the trail passes the remains of Roman aqueducts and Byzantine mosaics on its way past Ein Samia (Samia Spring), before ascending a tight, rugged wadi on the way to Kafr Malek. There, after a long climb, hikers are rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding area.
