Mount Meron – Northern Israel

1208 meters above sea level, Mount Meron is one of Israel’s tallest mountains. On my family tour to northern Israel, we stayed an over-night in the area, and woke up the next day to an unbelievably gorgeous weather and one of Israel’s finest views topped with a fine delicate cream of clouds hovering above. On a truly clear day, you can far into Lebanon and the Golan Heights, perhaps as far as Syria.

Absolutely breath-taking.

The hike surrounding the army base on the top of the mountain, is part of the Israeli National Trail, covering Israel from the north to the south. This short part of Mount Meron took us less than two hours.
