Mount Hermon

From Wikitravel
Golan Heights : Mount Hermon
Jump to: navigation, search

Mount Hermon is in Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

Understand[edit]

This is the highest mountain in the region and is home to the sole ski resort controlled by Israelis. Part of the mountain is in Israeli occupied Golan Heights and the rest in Lebanon and Syria. Since Israel is officially at war with those countries, it is not possible to approach much less cross the border.

There is snow for only part of the year, so check ahead to see if you can come ski. At other times, you can still visit and enjoy the views, the wildflowers, and so on at a much cheaper price.

Get in[edit]

Generally, you must come by private car. There is no public transportation within about 10km of the ski site. The ski company offers bus trips from Tel Aviv to the ski site. Call them for details (see internet site below).
