Mount Tabor, Kfar Tavor

(4.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, Mount Tabor draws pilgrims and tourists with its rich religious and historic background, as well as its scenic views of the valley. Many Christians consider this the site of Jesus' transfiguration, while for Jewish people it represents the battleground where the Israelite judge Deborah defeated the army of Jabin. The hill features a Franciscan basilica, a Greek Orthodox sanctuary, some Roman ruins, and the remains of 13th-century Crusader towers and walls. Two hiking trails lead to its top, where you may meet some local hang gliders about to launch. Make Mount Tabor a part of your Kfar Tavor vacation plans using our Kfar Tavor tourist route planner.

  • הדרך לפסגת הר תבור עוברת דרך כפר שיבלי. כפר בדואי שהכביש הראשי בו מגיע יש לכביש המוביל להר. בתי הכפר מטופחים והרחובות נקיים. הכביש המוביל להר, מפותל וצר עד מאוד ובקושי שתי מכוניות עוברות אחת ליד השניי...  more »
  • Mount Tavor is a little away from all the attractions, but I recommend that you incorporate it into your itinerary. We were raised there Ltd., vistas around, hang gliders flown at a level lower than have the opportunity to go and they were lovely views! at the top there is a free parking lot, directly in front of the Basilica, it is necessary to pass along the narrow alleys. There are viewing platforms on all sides. pleased and a small but beautiful garden. And I am prepared to Valley viewed from any height! sincerely admired.
