The Yehudiya Forest Nature Reserve covers 16,500 acres in the central Golan heights, is shaped like a hand and each finger is a flowing stream. The forest itself in the reserve covers a third of the reserve with the most common tree being the large Mt. Tabor oak tree. Animals that can be found in the reserve are gazelles, wild boars, jackals, conies, Indian-crested porcupines and the Cairo spiny mouse. Raptors such as kestrels, short-toed eagles, Bonelli’s eagles, Egyptian vultures, buzzards, Griffon vultures and a large variety of song birds can be seen in the skies above the nature reserve. The five main streams in the nature reserve are the Meshushim, Yehudiya, Daliyot, Zavitan and Gamla. Dozens of shallow tributaries make up these streams and magnificent basalt canyons and high waterfalls are created by the flow of the streams, ending in lagoons and wetlands. The streams are marked with a number of streams, varying in levels of difficulty. Make sure to stop by the information center on site in order to get the latest information on the condition of the trails in the reserve.
address: The reserve is located off the Yehudiya-Hushniya Road (no. 87), 7km east of the Yehudiya junction, approximately 5.5 km south of Katzrin.
Open Hours: Apr-Sep 8:00-17:00, Oct-Mar 8:00-16:00, Fri & Holiday Eves 8:00-15:00

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.
