You can see the UN outpost and a bombed-out Syrian village but for me the real excitement came from hearing the shelling of ISIS encampments 10 km away. This was on the news that night. There are vendors at this site but they are not...More

Mount Bental has breathtaking panoramic views of Israel and Syria. In order to fully appreciate the historical context of the views, I would recommend going with a tour as no information is provided on the mountain. Additionally, there is a good restaurant at the top...More
