 Highlights on Mount Arbel

 

The panoramic views from atop mount Arbel is well worth a climb up for the sporty visitor, with its well marked trails. The top rewards its visitor with an incredible view all the way to Mount Hermon at Israel's northern border, which top is covered in snow large parts of the year, far down the Jordan valley to the south and the slopes of the Golan Heights rising up majestically to the east.

 

 

Background Information on Mount Arbel

 

Mount Arbel is mentioned only once in the Bible in Hoseas 10,14, and not even once in the New Testament, but it was for certain a place well known to Jesus and his disciples because of its position as a main land mark around the Sea of Galilee. It is known that the foot of the mountain touched on a much used travel route connecting the lake to the west, and Jesus most likely used the route too when travelling in the area. Today Mount Arbel's dramatic cliffs are seen from nearly any spot around the Sea of Galilee and several modern settlements can be found on its long, flat top in addition to a golf course soon to be inaugurated.

 

 

Travelujah Tips

 

Hiking is not advisable during the summer months due to heat in the low lying areas of the Sea of Galilee.
