Gamla (Hebrew:גמלא) is a Nature Reserve and Archeological Site in the Golan Heights.

Understand

'Gamla' means a "camel" in Hebrew, the name of the hill top location clearly taking its name from a resemblance to a camel's hump.

NB: Gamla Nature Reserve is often closed to visitors weekdays on account of army exercises. Be sure to telephone the reserve before you set out to verify that it is open.

Get in

Turn off the Sea of Galilee road at Gamla junction and then take Route 869 to Daliyot junction, turning north after about 2 km. A signposted dirt road leads to the reserve.
