    Enter the Bunker atop Mt. Bental

    Entrance into the bunker...shiver!

    On the summit of the mountain is a restored bunker which by all counts is fascinating. You don't have to be a military buff to appreciate how difficult and challenging it must have been for the IDF to be perched atop this site, crouching inside the man-made bunker which not only included sleep barracks, but also a kitchen, meeting room and lookout point.

    Explore Outside the Bunker atop Mt. Bental

    Outside the bunker is a sign-post showing the distance to Damascus, Baghdad, Beirut, and other strategic points. Perched alongside the bunker are metal effiges of Israeli soldiers on guard....a haunting depiction of what it must have been like to be perched atop this mountain, fighting off aggressive enemies.

    Great photo opportunities here - take advantage.

    Visit Mt. Bental

    View toward Syria from atop Mt. Bental

    Whether you know anything about the Yom Kippur War - and even if you don't - this place should be included on your agenda of sites to see while in the area. The summit of Mount Bental offers a spectacular panoramic view of Syria, Lebanon and Northeastern Israel. From this strategic point, one can look over the famous Quinetra Valley, aka "Valley of Tears" - named so for hosting one of the Yom Kippur's bloodiest battles in 1973.

    Stripes Canyon

    Not too many people know this place. This is a very easy hike along this little canyon whic unlike the rest of the Golan heights is not black volcanic rock but quite sandy with beautiful stripes more common to the Negev area.

    View from Mount Bental

    Mount Bental offers great views. To the north you can see Mount Hermon, to the east you have a view of Syria and to the south you can see a windmill farm.
