What an experience!

One of my best memories of this area is my walk on the path below these cliffs. Our guide had some great information about the area.

Have been at this place about half a dozen times. It is an amazing combination of a beautiful view, history with a lot of interesting stories, a place that one can climb and enjoy the tails and last but not least wonderful weather year-round

Mount Arbel is one of the few places in Israel where one can view a grand vista of the countryside. It’s an easy 10-minute drive from Tiberias and a short walk to the viewpoints. Recommend going at dawn or dusk when the air is clearest.

Mount Arbel looks like a mountain from the north and east, but it is actually a very impressive cliff with a very gentle rise from the west. Fabulous views of Galilee. Very good National Park facilities on top. Very strict Friday/Shabbat hours with a big gate. Put high on your list, but if you wish to avoid a serious climb... More

The Arbel mountain stands in an amazing spot, that oversees the Sea of Galilee. One of the most beautiful spots over this important sea. The hiking is a little challenging but very fun. So for people who would like to have a lovely hiking with a little adventure over an amazing view.

This was one of places we had listed a "if we have time" and we did one day. And it turned out to be the best part of our day. It was a hot day but the breeze was cool up there. The views were unmatched anywhere in Israel!!! Go here! Do some hiking, you won't regret it.

The walk to the top requires a moderate amount of exertion, but is well worth the effort. The history of the site is rather gruesome, but interesting.

You can either star the hike from the botton ip or the other wsy around. In either case the view is amazing! You wil need few hours to do the hike. If you dont have time to hike you can still go to the upper part and enjoy the amazing view.
