Golan Heights Golan Heights Golan Heights

The Golan Heights is a mountainous region complemented by beautiful wild flowers, flowing rivers and gushing waterfalls. Katzin, the capital of the Golan region, is a new town offering the Golan Archeological Museum, accommodation and restaurants.
The Golan was occupied by Israel during the Six-day, when all the Syrian inhabitants fled except for the local Druze inhabitants, who live in four villages in the region. The Druze carry on a traditional way of life, working the land, harvesting their crops – mainly apples – and raising goats, sheep and cows.

Archeological excavations have uncovered historical remains from the following periods: Canaanite, Roman, Byzantine, Crusader and Mameluke.
