Hiking Nahal El Al

Nahal El Al is the southernmost strong river in the Golan Heights. The canyon part of the stream, between Moshavim Eliad and Avnei Eitan; has been defined as an “Eli Al” nature reserve that covers an area of ​​approximately 2,107 dunams. In its shallow eastern part, the waters of Nahal El Al are captured in the Bnei Yisrael reservoir near Hispin, one of the largest water reservoirs in the Golan.

The stream passes through the reserve in a channel that deepens as the stream descends and during it creates several waterfalls, including the “White Waterfall” and the “Black Waterfall”; and several natural and artificial pools, including the natural “Cow Hill” and “Ein Noked” and the artificial “Ein Keif” that receive Their waters as a result of flowing from the ribs of the channel. Nahal El Al merges with Wadi Samekh to form Nahal Samekh; which flows into the Sea of ​​Galilee. A 25-kilometer-long aqueduct used to carry the river water to the city of Susita during the Hellenistic period.

Nahal El-Al is one of my personal favorite areas to hike. It super fun in the summer because you can jump into the water springs and waterfalls. Also in the winter, everything is in bloom and the area turns to a different land.
