Background Information on the Hula Valley
The Hula Valley is the site of Biblical Merom and Hazor in the very north of Israel. The area belonged to the tribe of Dan who built the city of Dan there. The valley has been settled continuously for the last 10 000 years and is today a green, lush area dotted with kibbutzim and other settlements. The Merom lake was drained in the 1950's in an attempt to turn the valley into farmland, but has since been partly re-flooded in order to protect the invaluable wild life indigenous to the area. Situated in the African Rift, the Hula Valley is an important stop over for transmigrating birds, and has again become a paradise for bird watchers.
