Saar Falls ,Golan Heights, Israel


Address -: Saar Falls ,Golan Heights, Israel

The Saar Falls in the Golan Heights are both amazingly picturesque and easily accessible. Found just off Road 99, some four kilometers from the Nimrod Fortress, the waterfalls are best visited in the winter or spring when the water and snow from Mount Hermon are still making their descent to the Sea of Galilee. In the summer and autumn, the falls are reduced to a mere puddle so be sure to time your trip right.
Fed by the rain and snow runoff of the mountains in the Upper Golan, the Sa’ar River passes through the Sa’ar Valley, the cold water plummeting down the rocky waterfalls of Sa’ar Falls. A series of three waterfalls, the middle one being the tallest and most impressive, can be seen together from the observation path just minutes away from parking. Additionally, a wooden bridge spans the gap of rushing water between the first and second fall. For those looking for a secluded area to picnic, be sure to go either on the banks before the falls or on the grassy cliff edge after the falls, which looks out over the falls. Both are scenic and somewhat secluded.
If you’re not into hiking, and if you don’t feel like paying the entrance fee for a nature reserve (to see, say, the Tanur Falls or the Banias waterfall), then Saar Falls is just perfect. It’s way north – halfway betwen Kiryat Shmona and the Hermon. Located just a few steps from the road (there’s parking across the road).
