Gilboa Mount

Gilboa Mount

If you find yourself in the northern part of the country, don't miss the opportunity to admire Gilboa. This mountain range is considered one of the most picturesque in the region. Located south of the Isreel Valley, Gilboa is very impressive. It actually "grows" from a vertical rock 600 meters high. The ridge stretches for 18 kilometers. If you are lucky enough to climb to the top, you will have a spectacular view of the surrounding area.

Beit Lehem Haglilit

Beit Lehem Haglilit

This settlement is just over a century old. In 1906 it was founded by the Templers, representatives of an independent German religious organization that had split from the Lutheran Church in the mid-19th century. In the Alonei Tabor forest they built a village in German traditions, where they engaged in agriculture. Beit Lehem of Galilee became one of such settlements that sprang up throughout the country at that time.
