Hitchhiking

First, there's a group for people looking for a ride to the ashram, try it! : https://goo.gl/J5Qjg2
For those of you who took a ride to the Ashram in the desert via the Arava road (Route 90) - for those coming from the north and those coming from the south - we recommend to get off at Ketura Junction and not at Menucha Junction. The traffic between the Menucha and Ashram junction in the desert is sparse compared to the traffic between Ketura and the Ashram.
Not every road that has signs with the number 90 is indeed Route 90. Usually it's a speed-limiting sign, and then it's round with a red border.

By foot

Nature lovers who enjoy hiking can reach the Ashram on the Israel Trail, along the trail between Nahal Tzihor and Nahal Hayoun. So if you start the trail on time (hint, whoever starts from Eilat, has much less distance to walk to Ashram), you can get to Zorba.

By bicycle

The riders on bicycles will come to us the same way ... because of the army presence, the section of the path that passes through the area is on Route 40, and the Desert Ashram is located right on its side.

by car

The Desert Ashram is located in the settlement of Shitim on Route 40 between Tzihor Junction and Shizafon Junction.
From the north: Drive from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem to Be'er Sheva
From Be'er Sheva, drive on Highway 40 to Mitzpeh Ramon (the last gas station). Stay on Route 40, drive 70 km south of Mitzpeh Ramon, cross the Ramon Crater going all the time straight (about 45 minutes) and at the Tzihor Junction (T junction) turn right for a 7 minute drive. It's the first settlement you will see on the left.
You can also reach the Ashram via the Arava Road (Route 90). Drive straight to the Menucha junction, turn right and continue for about 20 minutes, and the Desert Ashram will be the first settlement to your left.
Do not forget to refuel. It's hard to get home on fuel fumes.
From the south: 85 km north of Eilat. Drive on the Arava road (Route 90), turn left at Ketura Junction (towards Neot Smadar or Shizafon) 12 minutes after you passed Kibbutz Neot Smadar the Desert Ashram will appear on your right.
In case you came from Eilat and did not fill the fuel at the exit ... Come on, really?...

By bus

Line 392, which runs between Eilat and Be'er Sheva passes right here (station name: "Shittim branch"). Since the Desert Ashram is right next to the road, the station is a minute and a half walk from the entrance gate.
Remember that it is a holiday, so it is your responsibility to check when there is public transportation back and forth.
You can check the schedule at the Egged site here.

On the train

The railway line does not reach these areas in Israel, so it is possible to take the train to the final stop in Be'er Sheva ("Beer Sheva Central"), and from there take bus number 392 south.

See you soon!
