RAMALLAH, West Bank — The culturally rich landscape of the West Bank has long attracted local and international hikers, but Mohammed Abu Hashhash, a history graduate, wants to cast the spotlight on 144 lesser-known routes that showcase the natural and cultural landscape of his country.

For the last seven months, Hashhash has been working on a guide book that he plans to call “An Expert Trek Guide of the West Bank," hoping it would be instrumental in boosting eco-tourism in the region.
