Touring the Golan Heights

The Golan Heights is a Basaltic Plateau east of the Sea of Galilee and the Hulah valley. Following years of Syrian targeting Jewish farms in the Hulah valley, in 1967 Israel captured 2/3 Golan Heights, up to the volcanos facing Quneitra. A Syrian attempt to reclaim the area without a peace agreement in 1973 was successfully blocked, and so it is held by Israel to this day. In the years of Israeli hold, the Golan Heights witnessed unprecedented development, including in Tourism.

Golan Heights tourA great way to introduce the Golan Heights is a visit to Mt. Bental, as well as an Off-road tour in the Golan Heights, and even an ATV tour next to the Syrian Border. Don’t miss also a lunch experience at a Druze home!.
