Galilee & Golan Heights Off road 4x4 jeep tours. טיולי ג'יפים נצרת, כינרת, רמת הגולן

Mt. of Beatitudes, Galilee & Golan Heights Off road 4x4 jeep tours. טיולי ג'יפים נצרת, כינרת, רמת הגולן "Ambassadorial" tour:
We walk through 3400 years of history tracking the events that have traumatized and strengthen the Hebrew nation, wile giving berth to one of the largest religions in the world today. The Galilee today, is a cultural and religious "fair ground"  and we will experience it too. Starting our tour at Nazareth, we meet with the Christian Arabs way of life and city structure but also visit the home of the boy called Jesus, later to be expanded as one of the most artistic and modern church to be called The Church of Annunciation.  

Reaching the northern tip of the Sea of Galilee, we turn up the off road famous pilgrimage track, climbing the Mt. of Beatitudes towards the beautiful garden grounds and the Church itself. See what choice of location you make, for spiritually reviewing some of the Beatitudes, considered the first theological foundation of Christianity.
Once back down to the Sea of Galilee, we visit the best proof Jesus influenced the very rich and not only the miss-fortuned. We enter the famous village of Capernaum.

Further east, we climb up the unique red-black Basel rich plains of the Golan Heights. Thousands of years ago, two and a half Hebrew tribes mad it their home. 2000 years ago, there were thriving Israeli religious agricultural settlements, demolished and exiled by the Romans. Wile on our way up, we may spot part of the most magnificent ruins of the Natur synagogue.  After the great exile, it was only in 1967, the Jews returned to the Golan and the main cause for that, in the Water Conflict with the Syrians. Why was the water conflict so critical and how were the results so dramatic, we shall understand from visiting The Peace outlook, the Syrian bunkers and the triangle of three boarders. Reaching some of those sites, is a breathtaking off road track...

G. Nazareth, Sea of Galilee & Golan heights.

Swimming through a mine field..

The Zaki water track: A combined sensation of walking in tempered fresh water, with Willow tree (עץ ערבה) branches above, the sweet scent of fig trees, and the sweet and sour taste of wild raspberry (פטל בר). This little Garden of Eden was once a death trap of military mines so, how did hell become Eden?...

G. Mt. Beatitudes.

The first and burning focus of "The Nazerians" belief and human conduct (later to become one of the worlds largest religion - Christianity) was established on this mountain and is called "The ceremony on the mount". Today, this Mt. of Beatitudes, is a world pilgrimage site but is designed to hold open ceremonies and perfectly suited to review the original lerning...  

G. Jordan river.

Bathing in the Jordan river is extremely refreshing to say the least....The Jordan river was chosen by John the Baptist as the river of choice for spiritual cleansing. It is the largest all year fresh water running river in Israel. This image was taken not 500 meters away from the north edge baptizing site of the Jordan river. The original baptizing site, is at the southern end of the river, approaching the Dead Sea.

G. Mitspe Hashalom

Once, 3400 years ago, at the end of a 40 years walking track in the desert, fleeing from slavery back to their ancestors land, two and a half tribes of the Hebrew Israelites, made the Bashan heights, later to be known as the Golan Heights, their final settling land...After an impossible to win rebellion against the formidable Roman empire, the Israelites where exiled for 2000 years, returning to the Golan, only after the 1967 ware. At last, fully protecting the main and only fresh water lake of the sea of Galilee.

G. Cfar-Nachum.

Two remarkable church and one immense synagogue side by side, marking the first steps of a great faith being born. Capernaum.

G. Church of Annunciation.

External clean cut lines, internal tall color glass, wood and metal art combined with 2000 years old underground humble living quarters once used by a boy later to become the initiator of a great religion.  The Church of Annunciation in the old city of Nazareth, the largest Christian city in Israel today.

G. Kibutz Gadot.

The spirit of people that built this country from the ashes of exile and Europe.  This Kibutz, Gadot, was founded in 1949 and right through to 1967, was under snipers and canon shells from the Syrian Golan Heights.  Countless nights, children and parents, would sleep  in the underground bunkers for shelter. On morning April 7 1967, after a particularly heavy shelling, the children of Gadot, when exiting the bunkers, where stopped dead in there tracks. All homes of the Kibitz where shell-demolished....
Today, most of the Kibutz is vegetation, lawns and pates wilst among them, are small humble homes of the Kibutz members and there family. 

G. Golan Syrian bunkers.

All along the Golan Heights, Syria spent massively in building bunkers concealing cannons firing down on Israeli settlements in the Chula valley. The 1967 6 day war, finally put an end to that. 

G. Um-El-Kantir Synagogue & Syrian water trench.

In the far right, the Natur synagogue reconstruction crane is visible and the track below is is the Syrian water trench, sparking endless fire and selling incidents, finnaly ending in the 6 day war of 1967.
