A short drive from Nazareth, this is supposedly the place where a mob tried to throw Jesus off the mountain. I took these traditions with a grain of salt, but one thing is sure: the view of the surrounding area is spectacular.

On our 10 day Israel tour by bus, oftentimes an overview of an area was the way to get a sense of the history and what we were going to see while there. This provided that opportunity for Nazareth.

This place has near 360 degrees view overlooking some very important sites. Loved being up here, not too hard to climb but one must bring a camera and lots of water. Having a knowledgeable guide would be beneficial to point out all the significant places....More

There is a path to walk up the a very beautiful lookout that views Nazareth. This is supposed to be where the crowd took Jesus to throw him over the cliff, which they did not. Bathroom facilities are available.
