The Hula Lake is locate in the southern part of the Hula Valley, north of the Nature Reserve, established as part of a JNF rehabilitation project. In the early 1990s a part of the valley was flooded due to heavy rains. A decision was taken to develop the surrounding area and to leave the flooded area intake. The site became the second home for the thousands of migrating birds in the autumn and spring. The lake covers one square kilometer and has several interspersed islands that serve as protected bird nesting sites. The Lake is a major stopover for birds flying the Europe-Africa-Europe route and is a major bird watching site.
