We traveled with the children to see the beatiful waterfall. The river is full from the last rain and it is nice to see the stream and water strength.

The walk through this reserve is just great! It’s quite up and down, but the waterfall is lovely and when it is hot, it’s quite refreshing staying there, watching, listening and relaxing. If you just take the tour to the falls without the springs you...More

This was a stop off on a study tour for us. This is cool. I had not idea that this much water would come from springs in Israel. The waterfall is very refreshing and creates a rain forest type of environment very close to it....More

We took the Most expertly choreographed suspended walk to get there. Getting glimpses of river Jordan ( one of 5 tributaries) below an distant sound of crashing water 💦. Once at the waterfall, enjoyed the sight and sound. Plenty of picknick benches along the way.

Such a contrast in this usually hot, dry climate to visit this oasis. Unfortunately no swimming is allowed. If you’re going in hot weather, take water, wear a hat and enjoy!

The falls were quite nice with an excellent water flow. The trail is well marked, but can be hard on someone not use to walking in somewhat rough terrain. There seemed to be a short cut that could have been taken instead of the loop...More
