Holyland Pilgrimages For Christians

Holyland Pilgrimages Tour Packages In Israel

Israel holds a special place in the hearts of Christians throughout the world. It is where they go for their Holyland pilgrimages. Much like Mecca has a place in the hearts of Muslims.

It might seem strange to many to know that Christians and Muslims, along with people from all religions, thrive as a nation in Malaysia. While the rest of world is in turmoil, and wars between religion and race break out, we stand as an nation for peace. And that is why you should visit Sabah.

Holyland Pilgrimages For Christians

Christians make up a good percentage of the population in Sabah, many Chinese and Kadazandusuns are Christians. I imagine a good number of people would like to pay a visit to Israel, to see history and faith in real life.

Of course, traveling to Israel for Holyland Pilgrimages on a Malaysia passport is going to difficult. Malaysia does not officially recognize Israel, and then Israel does not issue visas for those who travel alone.

For the other 80% of the world who recognizes Israel, this would likely not be a problem. I suppose only Malaysians with dual citizenship will be able to visit Israel.

Many thousands of Christians visit Jerusalem to see the ancient sites where Jesus and Christianity originate from.

What is the Jesus Trail?
Of particular interest is the Jesus Trail in northern Israel. The Jesus trail is a hiking route of 65km which runs from Nazareth to Capernaum, a journey which Jesus himself may have taken.

The Jesus Trail connects significant Christian points of interest as well as providing an original way of getting to know the land of Jesus through the historic and religious stops along the way. On the Jesus Trail you can see the Holy Land as Jesus would have, by foot, and at the same time experience the Israeli countryside as it is today taking in panoramic views of the Sea of Galilee. – www.Holyland-Pilgrimages.com

What Pilgrims Say About The Jesus Trail

The Jesus Trail sounds like an exciting and adventurous way to explore the hills and valleys that Jesus would have walked. You get to see all Christian sites and the Israeli villages, the trail is within the pre-1967 borders and is completely safe, we are assured.

Although northern Israel has pleasant weather all year round, the best time to hike the Jesus Trail is in spring or autumn. You need only to be of average fitness to manage the walk, there are plenty of stops along the way.

Rekindle your faith or visit an ancient historical landmark, this particular journey may be more spiritual than your normal tour.
