Birkat Ram – or Ram Lake- is a large, natural reservoir that is located in the crater of a dormant volcano. The lake is round in shape and receives water from underground springs and rain water. According to the Talmud, Birkat Ram is one of the three underground springs, along with Hamat Gader in the southeastern Golan heights and Hamat Tiberias in Tiberias, that opened up in the Flood of Noah and didn't close up again after the flood. The lake is considered quite large by Israeli standards, is 600m long, 6-10 meters deep, is situated at 940 meters above sea level, on the shores of the incredible view of Mount Hermon. Apple, peach and pear trees grow in abundance around the lake and make for a particularly beautiful scene in spring.
