Mount Bental Observatory

From the top of this dormant volcano cone (3845 feet high) that was once a military outpost, you can see majestic vistas of snow-capped Mount Hermon to the north and the Syrian side of the Golan to the east. Opposite is the deserted city of Kuneitra in the area known as the “Valley of Tears,” the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Yom Kippur War.
