The Golan Heights Tour takes you north through the Plain of Armageddon and past Megiddo into the Galilee. The Galilee has rolling hills, farmlands, vineyards and the beautiful Sea of Galilee. Crossing the Jordan River we ascend the Golan Heights through lush countryside. We pass Hamat Gader, a site with hot springs used by the Romans and modern-day spa-goers. We travel to the Shalom Observatory and from this elevated point we have stunning views all the way to the Sea of Galilee. In Katzrin we see an excavated Jewish village from the Mishnah and Talmudic eras. Nearby we visit the Golan Antiquities Museum and see archaeological discoveries from the Golan plus a film on the ancient Jewish city of Gamla. At Mt. Bental we explore the remaining Syrian bunkers and trenches captured by Israelis in the 1967 Six Day War.
Hamat Gader is the name of the ancient city standing above the hot springs of a small low valley (-150 m) located at the southern foot of the Golan Plateau.
It is not only a health resort, but also a monument of religion and culture with 2,000 years of history.
The Golan Heights is a mountain plateau of volcanic origin, extending eastward from the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) and the Hula Valley, and further inland into Syria. Most of it is more than 1,000 meters above sea level.
