One of the most exciting National Parks in Israel. The hanging bridge is on the canyon wall allowing magnificent views of the foaming water below and leading to the waterfall. Recommended.
Amazing temple of Pan. Also historical site of Caesarea Philippi where Jesus took a retreat from daily life. River offers different scenery. Some nice walks in area, maybe 30-40 minutes and fairly easy. Amazing temples carved into the rock face.

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
