Mount Tabor + Jezreel Valley, Israel

While in Israel, we visited Mount Precipice. It offers a lovely view of the Jezreel Valley and also Mount Tabor (the dome-shaped mound rising out of the earth). Being at the peak of Mount Precipice was an experience to remember. While there is a paved path, you can also walk out on the rocks to the edge (or, as far as you dare). I enjoyed several minutes at the top, letting my eyes take in the sights on every side. If you’re looking for a panoramic viewing spot, this is it. Mount Precipice holds religious significance for many visitors, as tradition holds that it was at this spot that an angry mob tried to throw Jesus off a cliff because he identified himself as fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophesy. I found it interesting to visit sites so steeped in tradition that they have become practically historical fact. Also, there is a cave at the base of Mount Precipice, where Neolithic remains were found. Tradition. History. This site has it all.
