There are UN vehicles passing through, but the best you can do is sidle up to the border fence and peek through at the Lebanese soldier on the other side. Take a picture in front of the sign giving the distances to Beirut and Jerusalem. This is part of the Rosh Haniqra experience and is free, but you won't want... More

You can not cross at this border but it does provide some interesting photographs. The border is made up of the Israel border crossing then the United Nations before reaching the Lebanese border crossing. Visit here as part of the Rosh HaNikra Grotto's experience

So how many times can you actually say you seen Is Railey troops protecting the border where the next stage of defense is the United Nations and then a Lebanese outpost? That happens right here you can climb up a little ways and get a good camera shots of it. Something off the beaten path and a must do.

You can look but you can't cross. This is the northernmost point of Israel, where it abuts Lebanon. Not much more to do than take a picture to show you were there.

What a time when the two countries were so close to sign a peace treaty ! Today you can get so close to the border that you can touch the main gate.Only U.N. patrol forces use the gate and in darker circumstances the bodies of two Israeli soldiers were returned through this gate.Take a photo by the wall showing that...

Make sure you walk all the way to the end by the restaurant for a great photo standing next to arrows painted onto the building that point to Beirut. You can't see much of the border because it is fenced off and gated, but you can see the markers in the water and an Israeli warship hanging out in the... More

This is just one border line. Nothing special. The must visit place is Rosh HaNikhra. One of the top places in Israel.

The border line between Lebanon and Israel is not interesting, to say the least. The grottos of Rosh Haniqra, however, are absolutely stunning. You have to take the rather expensive cable car ride to get down to the grottos, but once you are there, you can walk through the natural caves (watch your step, as the entire place is extremely...
