The Hula Valley stretches between the Ramot ridge on the west, and the Golan Heights on the east, from the Ayun valley in the north to the Sea of Galilee in the south. Until the 1950's this whole area was a big swamp, filled with Anplus mosquito, malaria disease and death. Since then the Hula lake had been dried and then restored and today the valley is flourishing, the land is fertile and is home to some 500m birds who migrate every year to and from Europe, and stop to rest and feed in its waters.
2 of Israel's largest rivers flow through the valley - the Dan and the Jordan rivers. The Hula Valley plays an important role in Israel's recent history and today the valley offers several points of interest:
Metula is Israels' most northern village and boarders with Lebanon. founded in the late 19 hundreds, this small village is an example of strength and vigor of farmers who were able to continue their day to day despite daily harassment from Lebanon.
Tel Dan is a 5,000 years old Canaanite city and the Abraham Gate is the oldest Arch gate in the world from the 18th century BC... 2,000 years before the Romans.
The Hula lake is the largest bird lookout in Israel and has excellent bird watch location in spring and autumn.
Mt. Hermon, the highest mountain in Israel is seen from every corner of the Hula Valley.
