Mount Hermon

Mount Hermon

Mount Hermon is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.803m (9,196ft) above the sea level, located in the Golan Heights in the far north of Israel.

The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. 4wd vehicle required. The peak straddles one of the world's most infamously contested borders. On one side of the mountain is Israel, and on the other side are Syria and Lebanon. Located in the Anti-Lebanon mountain range. The peak is snow-clad during winter, mostly from November to March.
Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. On the summit is the highest permanently manned UN position in the world, known as Hermon Hotel.
