Usually, you have to hike a lot in order to get to the beauty. Here, it's a leisurely walk with beautiful waterfalls throughout. We opted for the 45 minute walk which is not hard but there are many stairs so not stroller-friendly.

The walk is worth the beauty of the waterfall. Nothing quite prepares you for the loveliness of the suspended trail walk to the actual waterfall. It is quite exposed to the sun and hot for a little way but once you get down to the...More

Nice route for walking and enjoying the beauty of nature. There are several routes in place, adjusted to everyone. In the hot summer days it is very nice and "cool" attraction.

Now after the rains, the water is flowing and running, and the scenery is spectacular. For those who have difficulty walking for a long time, it is recommended to follow the path of the non-hanging path.

There are two entrances to Banias. One directly to the waterfall, passing a wooden bridge built over the river. Easy walking, very impressive. The second entrance is for the Banias springs for viewing only, and for antiques sites, from here there is a longer walking...More

It was a nice walk to the falls. And the verdant trails made it pleasant too. Now the guide books suggest that the winter time is best to see plenty of water raging through the falls. Apparently the lack of rain has made it a...More

This is a very pretty waterfall, that is part of an Israeli National Park. It takes a few minutes to get here from the parking lot, along a pleasant trial. It is not Niagara Falls, but it is nice to see.
