Ya'ar Odem (Odem Forest)

Apple and cherry orchards, deer that wander around, impressive landscapes, refreshing water pools and thick forests- all of these are offered for your enjoyment in Ya'ar Odem (Odem Forest, or Red Forest), the largest Nature Reserve in the Golan Heights region. While touring this Nature Reserve you will encounter a unique natural phenomenon in the shape of 23 craters of different sizes, which are known as "Juba" or "Jubot” in plural, and are probably the result of a volcanic activity. Another interesting place here is the "Winds’ Gate”, an archeological site which received its name due to the strong winds that blow in it and contains remnants of settlements from the Iron Age and up until the Byzantine period. One can also find here a wishing tree that is decorated with ribbons, straight out of a fairy tale, and the Ya’ar HaAyalim (Deer Forest), a charming area inside the village of Odem where deer, ibexes and gazelles wander around. A walk in the Odem Forest trails offers one colorful flora, ancient trees and the magnificent views of the Golan Mountains and Mount Hermon.
