Vistas from Har Harie (Harie Mountain)
Har Harie (Harie Mountain) is the highest spot in Beit Jann and is considered a sacred place to the Druze who live here. WHY is another matter since the religion of the Druze is a secret religion. What that means is that you only learn of the religion if you become a Druze (almost impossible) and decide to become a religious person, even Druze who are not religious do not know about the secrets of the religion. As you progress with your studies you are very slowly granted access to the next level of secrets within the religion. But religous or not Har Harie is not off limits for anyone to go and enjoy. We had a day of haze, but on a clear day you can see Carmiel, the Medditeranian, Har Meron and of course Beit Jann itself.
It is also used as a jump off point for paragliding, although because of the sacredness of the spot this is discouraged.
Beit Jann overview 2
Here we are looking south and west, the mountain you can see on the right has a Druze religious buidling on top and while you cannot go into the structure if you are not a believer in the Druze faith, you can reach the top of the mountain and enjoy the fantastic view looking south.
As you can see in the second picture the road UP to Beit Jann is quite steep and you had better have a good car with sufficient cooling going up and good brakes going DOWN..

Beit Jann overview
From the entrance to the village you can see most of it lying before you, this is looking southeast. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the roads here, they wend in and out from between the houses, to learn you way is to learn the village. If you get lost, just continue on or stop and ask your way, it is fun getting lost, you find all sorts of beautiful spots that way.
