Overview

Deep ravines cross the center of the rocky Golan Heights, through which waterfalls flow into deep pools. Between the canyons, a park forest of Mt Tabor oaks grows on the heights. This is the largest nature reserve on the Golan Heights, well-loved by Israeli hikers.

We arrived at the parking lot which was almost empty. The ranger in the information booth told us "what do you want here? It's a long walk, nothing to see, and you can't swim". Well, that was not really encouraging. We had read different articles...More

There is a lot to explore here, but our favorite spot was the hexagon pool. 20 minutes down from the parking lot and 45 minutes back up; you definitely need to bring along a small bottle of water and it's a lot of stairs, with...More
