The Monastery of St. George (Choziba) is a few kilometers from Jericho along the valley known as Wadi Kelt. The Monastery is open to visitors and is richly decorated and quite serene. It is buit at the cave in which Elias was said to have wanted to perish but was fed by a raven who brought him food.

Wadi Kelt is a spectacular valley which runs through the West Bank to Jericho on the eastern border of Palestine. There is a marked walking track along its length which leads past the Monastery of St. George..
