ATTRACTIONS & LANDMARKS IN THE GOLAN HEIGHTS
The Golan Heights is a distinctive region covered by Basalt rocks, created from volcanic reactions millions of years ago.
It is the northeast border of Israel with Syria.
The Golan Heights reaches a altitude of 3,600 ft. above sea level and the top peaks reach a summit of 4,000 ft. On the Northern side of the Golan Heights soars Mount Hermon, the highest mountain in Israel, which is the border between Israel, Lebanon and Syria. On the southern side is the Yarmouk River, which is the border between Israel, Syria and Jordan.
This combination of basalt rocks so high above sea level creates the unique appeal of this region.
About 60,000 people live in the Golan Heights. Half of them are Jewish and half are Druze who live in four villages in the northern part of the Golan.

Spectacular views and great vantage points, wildlife, wonderful routes for hiking or by car, local folklore, archeological sites from different eras and great restaurants.
