History made and in the making

Eye opener to hear the elder of the kibbutz explain the historical events of Syria and Lebanon battles with Israel and the daily dynamics they currently face with them

Not to be missed.

This was my second visit and I returned to bring my family. It was as informative as before and worth the effort to get there. It’s a very authentic experience and helps one to grasp the way of life living on the Lebanese border. Advanced reservations required.

Lebanon Observation Site - well worth a trip
Sep 2018 • Friends
We cam here with our ICEJ tour group to learn and hear first-hand about life on a working kibbutz on a volatile border region with southern-Lebanon. From this hilltop ridge, you are virtually looking right down into the backyard of Hezbolah's headquarters!! Agriculture is its main income source but it also serves as a training base for students and a military outpost. The Kibbutz Manager lays it out in black and white just what the challenges are living in this high-risk geopolitical outpost.

I stayed on the Kibbutz
Oct 2017 • Solo
I stayed on the Kibbutz for a month- very sad it's gone as I had fun there in the 70's. Beautiful-grassy,dotted with large shady trees and roses climbing the walls of the small huts for temp workers:6 days in the fields or kitchens & 7th off to explore.Some of the Israeli's were camp survivors.

Fun, informative tour

Visited here as part of a tour to Israel. The kibbutz guide was informative and gave us all a good, informative insight on what it's like to live in this region of Israel. The views from the lookout were interesting.

Beautiful view of Lebanon, offensive guide
Jun 2017 • Friends
I was brought here with a group. The point was to show the border and to learn a little about the geopolitics of the area.
The views of Lebanon are stunning, but this did not make up for the offensive and patronizing presentation by the guide. I won't call him out by name, but his politics are to the extreme right; I am OK listening to other points of view but I'm not sure why it was necessary for him to share his opinion as he did even on topics not germain to our visit to the kibbutz.
I would have argued with him, but I felt it rude since it is his home. And he had a gun slung to his belt. I feigned illness and walked out. I would not recommend a visit to this site unless you are prepared to be told how little you know about anything, and how Aryeh knows it all.

Don't Miss the Benaya Lookout
Sep 2016 • Couples
just before the entrance to the Kibbutz there is an amazing lookout which was erected in remembrance to Benaya Rein an officer killed in the second Lebanese war in 2006. the lookout sits high above the north east Galilee with views deep into the Marj Ayun valley in Lebanon and the Shouf mountains in the distance to Mount Hermon in the east and the Hula valley in the south. it is really an amazing sight.
there is a system that narrates the story of Benaya and the Lebanese war.
The only sad point is that the lookout is littered with cigarette buts and other trash which spoils the respect of the place.

You should visit if you're in the area
Aug 2015 • Couples
Went to Misgav Am at the very end of the road and had to wait for security to open the gate for the cars in front of us. Parked at a lookout and took snapshots – to the left Lebanon villages, complete with mosque and a call to prayer while to the right we could see Metula and Kiryat Shemona and all the fields and fish ponds in the area. We had a walk around this beautiful little town that used to be an agricultural kibbutz and is now a centre for the nearby vineyards. We spoke with the girl in the snackfood bar who was helpful and happily provided tourist logistics for the price of a softdrink and we also spoke with a pleasant gardener as we wandered around the town looking at their gardens and playgrounds and houses. From the border the Israel side was green and verdant and lush with heaps of fish ponds and another two in the making. The Lebanese side had the occasional field but mainly sunburnt grounds and rocky lands. That’s why they call the border between Israel and its neighbours “the green line”. Also saw the UN UNIFIL outpost.

Fascinating Experience
Jul 2015 • Friends
We spent a morning in Misgav Am, overlooking the Lebanese Border and listening to a Kibbutz Member telling us about Life in a war-Zone, with pointing out current Hisbollah activities just a few hundred meters away. Seeing UN-Convoys, Hisbollah Flags, smoke clouds and Hearing gun shots, this is both a scary but impressive experience.
