A Perfect View of Northern Israel from Mount Tabor

Mount Tabor in Israel is pretty popular not only among Israelis, but tourists too. If you climb to the top, you can see for miles, giving you a great bird’s-eye view of the Holy Land. With rich biblical history, a few chapels located on top of the mount, and the perfect view to watch the sunrise, we can see why Mount Tabor is a popular destination.

“It’s not a very high mountain compared to the surrounding area; the mountains in Nazareth are higher. But because it sticks out in the middle of a valley in a perfect shape, that makes it unique and very noticeable,” Haran tells ISRAEL21c…

One reason for Mount Tabor’s popularity is the 360-degree view of the Jezreel Valley, Mount Gilboa, the Samarian mountains, Mount Carmel, the Golan Heights, Gilead, Afula, the Lower and Upper Galilee, and even Mount Hermon at the Lebanese border to the north…

The mountain figures prominently not only on the horizon but also in Jewish and Christian Scriptures.

“We read about it in the Hebrew Bible in several places. When the prophetess Deborah is fighting against [the Canaanite general] Sisera, she gathers the fighting forces of the 12 tribes on the steppes of the mountain. And she sits under a tree to pass judgment next to the mountain,” says Haran.
