Mitzpe Golani (Tel Faher)

 

This hill, situated in the northern Golan Heights region, is so quiet and pleasant today, making it difficult to believe that one of the most famous and terrible battles of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War of 1967 took place here. On this hill was a Syrian outpost, surrounded by trenches and mine fields. After an intense battle, a unit of the Golani Brigade managed to conquer the outpost. In memory of the soldiers who fell in this battle a monument and an impressive memorial area were built here, and today a trail is offered here which passes by the Syrian trenches system (with its communication trenches and bunkers). The trail is well-indicated and includes signposts and an audio system which describes the development of the battle. And the views… one cannot ignore the breathtaking views which this strategic point offers: the vast areas of the Golan and the Hula Valley in all of their splendor. Arrival through road number 99, near the Banias Nature Reserve.
