Mount Meron

Mount Meron is the highest peak in Israel at 1208 meters above sea level. It is of special significance in the Jewish religion and parts of it are a nature reserve. Mount Meron Nature Reserve is actually the largest and highest Nature Reserve in Israel (84000+ dunam). The village of Meron and the tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (the author of the chief work of Kabbalah, the Zohar) are on Mount Meron. The anniversary of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai’s death is the Hebrew date of Lag B’Omer and on that day thousands and thousands of people make their way to his tomb and celebrate the occasion of the mystical Torah that he brought down to the world. The mountain has strong undergrowth and can therefore not be ascended from every direction. The main path starts at the north-west side of the Meron village at the gate next to the road where there is a color-marked path of about 10km.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
