Overview

  • 1

The Tel Dan Nature Reserve has streams flowing in all directions into a wild river and the tall trees provide welcome shade on the hot summer afternoons. The Dan River is the largest, most important source of the Jordan, fed by rain and snow that trickles down from Mount Hermon. It emerges at the foot of the Hermon in hundreds of springs, making up the most plentiful karstic spring in the Middle East. The reserve is only 120 acres but features three different trails, one of which is wheelchair accessible. The trails pass along streams, the river and through shady trees. A flour mill that operated until 1948 is also passed by as well as the ruins of the Canaanite city of Laish. There is also the High Place which is attributed to the time of King Jeroboam. How to get there: Road 99, about 11km east of the Metsudot junction north of Kiryat Shmona, near Kibbutz Dan
