Mount Arbel located in Israel’s Lower Galilee region stands sharply and prominently over the Sea of Galilee. Its graceful stature and steep slopes, particularly on the eastern side, provide magical views across the Sea of Galilee and beyond, to the Golan Heights, and Israel’s tallest peak at Mount Hermon. Designated as Mount Arbel National Park and Nature Reserve, the mountain has beautiful observations, hiking trails, archaeology, and Biblical history, and is the only place approved for base jumping in Israel (Ministry of Tourism). This mountain is a key panoramic site in understanding the setting of the ministry of Jesus in the Galilee.
