Some 1,200 meters above the Sea of Galilee, Mount Bental is one of a number of defunct volcanoes out of which the Golan Heights was formed. The amazing height affords amazing views over Israel, and across into Syria, and as such has been a strategic point throughout history, including as the site of a famous and fierce battle during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
