As a licensed tour guide, I come here quite often. The nature reserve is clean and well kept. The hike from the parking lot to the waterfalls on the other side is about 45-55 minutes. It is not a hard hike, but it is a...More

An abundance of cool water in a hot and dry climate. Lush greenery set in an arid botanical setting. An oasis of refreshment on a warm summer day. That's how it is today, and undoubtedly how it was thousands of years ago. Banias is actually...More

Yes, cool, especially when you need it in the heat of the summer. Right there by Mt. Hermon, and Tel Dan, this place is a must. Caesarea Philippe was here. Take a walk, see the excavations, enjoy the water falls and the rest of the...More

This is where the three rivers Lyyon, Hasbani and Dan join together to become the River Jordan. The site where John the Baptist baptised Jesus. It is shady by the river and there are shelters from the sun all about, clean toilets and good parking....More

We spent half a day hiking the blue trail with two young kids and it was perfect. We enjoyed shade, water and the various parts of the trail. We hacked the trail: started at the hanging bridge and the water fall. Then one of us...More

We came here initially to see Caesarea Philippi (Agrippa Palace). We had no idea how much more there is to see. The Pan temple complex, Crusader, Byzantine and Muslim structures, pretty forest walking trails on top of the spring, stream and waterfalls made it well...More

This was such a terrific nature hike. Not overly demanding, we walked down the path to see the rushing stream below and then the waterfalls. So unexpectedly beautiful.

Biblical spot of Caesarea Philippi. I’ve visited the temple site and the source of the Mt Hermon springs. Gain a different perspective of biblical teachings. The gates of hell are located above the springs and you gain a first-hand experience of what it was like...More

This is quite an easy walk along the Banias (Hermon) stream, which is one of the 3 streams which create the Jordan river. Although less green than it was the previous time we were here, there was still plenty of watyer and the falls look...More

Israel is at its most beautiful at Banias—bushy trees, a clear cascading river that pops out of huge stone cliff, Biblical and pagan-Greek ruins, a breathtaking waterfall, hiking trails, a great restaurant and a nice gift shop. Plan on taking your time at Banias—it's quiet,...More

It depends the walk. You can wisit Banias falls by car and the drive to Banias spring - but you can also walk. Only Banias spring is about two - three hours??
