Sunrises and sunsets are stunning, but even if you visit in the middle of the daytime, you’ll have a great look around. According to Golan Exposure, this location looks the best during the springtime, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot visit during some of the other seasons.
If you are not a hiker, worry not, because there are multiple roads with different difficulties that you can take, most of them made for beginners and a few ones for professionals. At the top of these heights, you can do all sorts of activities, but most people simply want to rest and enjoy the beautiful landscapes.
