Banias Waterfall, Qiryat Shemona, Northern District, Israel
The Banias Waterfall provides one of Israel’s most beautifully tranquil spots.
Set within the Banias Nature Reserve in the Golan, the Banias is a spring which rises from the base of Mount Hermon, Israel’s tallest mountain, flowing for about 3.5km through a gorge, eventually coming to the impressive waterfall, the largest in Israel.
The Banias Nature Reserve contains an abundance of natural and historical beauty, from the ruins of ancient cities to the roaring Banias Waterfall – the biggest waterfall in Israel. Found in the Upper Golan between the fertile Hula Valley and the Mount Hermon mountain area, the Banias is a favorite for those visiting the Golan. Hours can be spent at the Banias; walking the trails, exploring the ruins and picnicking in the lush green woodlands.
