Haifa District Off The Beaten Path

  • Rosh Ha'Nikra

    Haifa Off The Beaten Path

    Just by the Israel - Lebanon border (which is closed) are the caves and white cliffs of Rosh HaNikra. It is a beautiful place by the Mediterranean Sea. The caves have been carved out of the rock by rain and the sea and a long tunnel has been made by man to connect the caves and make access easier for visitors. I saw the caves a sunny day, but I can...

  • Gamla (Dayr Qurah in Arabic)

    For this page on Gamla you will have to proceed to:Syria, Dayr Qurah....for some reason it is placed in Syria still.The "Problem" may be that when the war between Syria and Israel in 1967 was over, Israel found itself in possession of the Golan Heights (where Gamla is located) which had been in Syrian hands before. Since then there has been another...

    All around the northern parts of Israel you will find ancient olive trees still in production.

  • Berkat HaMeshushiem - the "big" pool

    Sorry that the picture does not show a closeup of the structure of the stone surrounding the pool. Not sure why, possible volcanic activity in the ancient past, but the stone has cracked and seperated into pillars that are octagonal. The "big" pool is only a few meters long and not very deep, followed by another pool, but dipping in this cool...

    You can see here how tiny the actual waterfall is. Only a few meters in height, yet in the dry spaces of the Golan it is a sight that is worth seeing. The stone is totally exposed where the water runs so be careful in the summer when you take your shoes off, that stone can be HOT...
