Something that you do once in a lifetime, even non religious people will experience magic of the place, and for the agnostics among us it is the best view on the Galilean valley.

When you visit Mount Tabor, no buses are allowed, small cars are allowed, so you may have to stop part way up and hire a local bus services which is quite reasonable. Do this to visit the top of Mount Tabor which is gorgeous in...More
