Golan Heights: Banyas natural reserve, Nimrod fortress and Mount Bental
*This tour starts from the Golan.
After an amazing Galilean breakfast we’ll visit in Tel Facher, one of the Syrian fortifications that were captured in a fierce battle by the Golani Brigade in the 1967 Six Day War.
Then we will visit the Banyas natural reserve, where we will see one of Israel’s main water sources. According to Christian tradition this is the place where the event mentioned in Mark 8 took place.
We will continue ascending to the Nimrod fortress, here you will see a nice medieval fortress with a beautiful view over the upper Galilee and the Golan.
We will have lunch in a Druze restaurant and we will hear about the 4 Druze villages that were taken by Israel in the 6 days war. The dilemma in which they live in confront them with the question who am i? Israeli or Syrian.
We then continue to Mount Bental, a volcano with a beautiful over look to Syria. From this place you will understand better the life of the Israelis and how small this country is.
