Join Finjan for a day-hike in the Upper Galilee between the Druze villages of Horfeish and Beit Jann – a wonderful opportunity to visit the Druze mountain sanctuaries in the north of Israel.
Our day will start from the Druze Village of Horfeish and the tomb of Nabi Sabalan (the Prophet Sabalan), one of the holiest figures in the Druze faith. From there we will head down into Wadi Kziv (the eastern part of the valley) before making our ascent up to Beit Jann.
The day will focus upon the Druze (el Mowahadin), their unique history, secret faith and cultural traditions and contributions to the region.
The Upper Galilee will be full of beautiful, lush, green woodland scapes; and we will use this as our background for getting a better understanding of the special cultures inhabiting this region of Israel.
Even though the trip is taking place at the end of January, we will already see how the Galilee is heading into the early springtime months. This trip will be a nice reprieve for those looking to escape the desert and explore Israel’s northern territory and close to the northern border with Lebanon
