In the northern Golan heights, at just over one-thousand meters above sea level, one can find Mount Bental, one of a series of hills and mountains in the region that are remnants of long extinct volcanoes which caused the grey basalt stone that the area is known for. The mountain is situated next to Merom Golan which was the first Kibbutz established in the Golan, mere weeks after the Six Day War and now hosts a disused army out-post where visitors can walk along trenches and descend into underground living quarters, getting a first-hand experience of life in the front lines. Visitors to Mount Bental can enjoy some incredible views; Mount Avital to the south from where the army keeps track of Syrian military activity, Syria a mere four kilometers to the east with a view of the ruined town of Kuneitra that was captured during the Six Day War, returned to Syria in 1974 but never rebuilt and perhaps the most poignant view of all is the Valley of Tears, to the north of Kuneitra. It was here that one of the fiercest tank battles of the Yom Kippur War took place, when the hugely outnumbered Israeli troops miraculously blocked the advances of the attacking Syrian forces. On the summit of the mountain one can enjoy coffee, snacks and toilet facilities in Coffee Anan- the highest café in Israel. How to get there: From the Mahanaim Junction (near Rosh pina) on the main Tiberias-Kiryat Shmona road, take the eastbound Route 91.

Near the city of Katzrin is the Talmudic Village of Katzrin; a reconstructed village that has been brought to life in the actual location of a village from Talmudic times, discovered shortly after the Six Day War. The settlement was one of twenty-seven villages in the center of the Golan.
In the village one can see an authentic ancient olive oil press and wander through the museum and the reconstructed kitchen, pantry, living room, bedroom and courtyard which are all complete with objects of daily life, many of which are authentic and were used by the region's farmers up until recently. These utensils often appear in Talmudic passages, bringing the scriptures to life for visitors and suddenly making them so very tangible. In addition, the remains of a Talmudic-era Synagogue can be explored and modern day celebrations such as Bar Mitzvahs and weddings are even held there today. For the younger population, there is an audio-visual show that explores the ancient sages of the period and by special arrangement bread-baking, pottery and olive-pressing can be arranged to provide the complete, authentic, ancient experience. Actors and actresses perform for the visitors and explain the kind of life that Jews in the area led in ancient times.
