Golan Heights day tour
Golan Heights resides in the most northern part of Israel where there are beautiful views filled with trees and mountains.
Your tour departs from Tel Aviv as you pass Natanya and Herzeliya. You will go north along the coastal plain then turn through the plain of Armageddon where you will find a good view of Megiddo. From Golan Heights you can see where the three borders meet, Jordan, Syria and Israel.
Katzrin is one of the major cities of the Golan Heights where you can find one of the oldest synagogues from the 6th century that was actually built over an even older synagogue built around the 4th century. Katzrin was destroyed in an earthquake in 746 C.E. and likely the reason it was abandoned. You will explore the partially restored remains of an excavated village from the period of the Talmud. Next you will move on to the Syrian fortifications at Mount Bental where you will find trenches and bunkers that were taken by Israel in the Six Day War.
