Create an itinerary including Mount Tabor
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. Take a look at our Kfar Tavor vacation maker tool to schedule your visit to Mount Tabor and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Beautiful view , but please be aware that walking distance of Israeli national trial that suggested by Google as 38 min took my family 2 hours and trial itself actually suited only for advanced hikers. I wish I knew it before taking my 70yo parents with me. We did it though, but I want to warn others!!!
  • Accessible and convenient to reach by private car. A lovely hike to the summit trail is suitable for families with children.
