Hiking at the Banias
Winter rains bring abundance of water
That’s me in the center
The Banias falls is about 3.5 kilometres downstream from the spring. It is said to be more impressive during the winter or early spring, but the park is green and beautiful and worth a visit all year round.
Because of all the rain in Israel this year the water levels were much higher then usual. As you can see this natural area is beautiful.
It doesn't matter what part of the trail you are on, there is always something beautiful to see. Take a second to breath in the fresh air and listen to the surrounding beauty, it is a very wonderful and refreshing feeling. This hike really brings you closer to nature.
Make sure to leave time for observing, you never know what you will find.

There had to be at least 20 of them eating the same plant.
This area is a great place to spend time with friends and family and to be one with nature. Enjoy the environment and all it can offer you, if you do you’ll see things you would never be able to imagine.
