Banias Waterfall & Nature Reserve
While not quire Niagara Falls, the Banias Waterfall does have the distinction of being the biggest waterfall in Israel and one of Israel’s most tranquil spots. Found in the Upper Golan between the Hula Valley and the Mount Hermon mountain area, which is the source of its powerful stream, the Banias Waterfall in the Banias nature reserve is a stop on every trip up to the Golan. The more adventurous, jump into the water and take a swim, to cool themselves off in the summer heat with its cool refreshing water.
The Banias Falls are just a short walk from the parking lot and entrance to the site along a a suspended trail, and the cool shaded surroundings provide relief in the summer heat. There are also a number of hikes that tourists can take in the Banias nature reserve, all of them less than an hour long. Some of the highlights include an old Crusader city and a palace built by Herod.
