Har Bental

Golan Volcanos


Bental is not a tel (archaeological mound). It is a volcano, or was a volcano, and so should be called Mount Bental, or Har Bental. Mount Bental is a dormant volcano which rises above the kibbutz of Marom Golan to the height of 1,165 meters above sea level. On the top of the mountain is a visitors’ center which belongs to the Golan Regional Council and includes an Israeli Defense Forces Bunker, with an automated information system, a charming café and a small and humorous Sculpture Garden made of scrap-iron, created by the Dutch sculptor Joop De Jong. From the mountain one can see the magnificent views of the Hermon, Northern Golan, Syrian Golan and the mountains of Southern Lebanon.
