The Golan Heights

The Golan Heights travel guide

The Golan Heights is a mountainous region in the north of Israel, borders with  Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. The area is hilly and elevated, overlooking the Sea of Galilee, Jordan River and the  2,743.2 meters tall Mount Hermon. The plateau that Israel controls is part of a larger area of volcanic basalt fields stretching north and east that were created in the series of volcanic eruptions that began recently in geological terms, almost 4 million years ago, and continue to this day.
