Mount Hermon Stream Nature Reserve (Banias) :
Route 99, Galil

The Nahal Hermon Nature Reserve, also known as the Banias, boasts the largest most powerful waterfall in Israel. The Banias and Nahal Hermon drains the southern slopes of Mt. Hermon and the northern Golan. The waterfall is 10 meters tall with force causing the refreshing mist to spread on the visitors on the nearby boardwalk. The boardwalk overlooking the falls is only a short walk from the parking lot.

The Hanging Trail, built of steel frames and a solid boardwalk, is 100 meters long, along which you can walk close to the rushing waters and see falls from above including the pool at the bottom.
