Hide And Seek

A few miles northwest of the Sea of Galilee, the terrain begins to rise sharply to form the high rolling hills of Upper Galilee.

Just beyond the ancient city of Safed, the highest city in Israel, stands the highest mountain in Israel, Mount Meron, at 1,208 meters/3,955 above sea level.

From Mount Meron, one can view the Sea of Galilee below, especially, the shoreline that extends from Tiberias to Capernaum to the Decapolis. Mount Tabor, twenty miles to the south and Mount Hermon, some fifteen miles to the northeast, are clearly visible. The whole Upper Jordan Valley lies more than 4,000 feet below.
