Leap to Peak team believes that experiences can awaken spirits and incite change. They seek to offer adventures that elevate people's minds, bodies, and spirits by connecting individuals to local cultural experiences and nature-immersive retreats. There is plenty to see and do in this vast world, but not many get to experience places through the lens of locals, uncover their talents, and let nature speak for itself.
Leap To Peak was born out of an idea to connect Palestinians to the land, each other, and ultimately with themselves. What started as a yoga and meditation exercise for 30 people in the abandoned village of Sataf in September 2021 has quickly evolved into a community of over 2000 souls, over 40 camping adventures across historical Palestine and venturing outwards to Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Cyprus, Finland, Italy, France, and Switzerland. To reach the Peak, you must take a leap of faith. We bring together people willing to get out of their comfort zones and leap into themselves and nature.
Designing augmented reality games in tourist places to promote tourism. To keep pace with recent developments in the context of enabling information and communication technology and employing it within the framework of digitizing the tourism system in tourist cities to reach smart tourist cities by providing modern digital tourism services, the transportation system is one of the most important requirements for the tourist. On the other hand, its importance lies as an economic tributary to the state.
However, there are multiple challenges facing tourists in terms of locating tourist offices in advance and the possibility of a time delay when requesting a transport vehicle, whether a taxi or a tourist. Therefore, the lack of digital maps and supportive systems for these services is one of the most important challenges for the transition toward smart tourist cities. The research paper aims to highlight the importance of digitizing tourism services to support tourist cities by providing applications that allow the tourist to request a specific service within the site with a focus on enabling the system for positioning services so that the tourist can locate the nearest service he wants and obtain it without delay. Thus, we talk about the importance of planning tourism services systems in sustainable development and their impact on societies on the other hand. Improving the quality of digital services provided within the framework of revitalizing digital tourism.
