Driving a short distance north we will visit the Dan Nature Reserve.  A gentle hike will take us through the reserve to view (1st Kings 12:28-29) the Canaanite-era gate as well as an impressive ritual site, most likely built by King Jeroboam. This area belonged to the tribe of Dan in the northern kingdom of Israel. We continue on to Gamla.  Known sometimes as the “Masada of the North,” Gamla is most famous for its strong defense against the Romans in the Jewish Revolt in AD 66.  The site is bordered on all sides by deep wadis of the Golan Heights and is approachable by only one footpath from the northeast.  The earliest settlement was in the Early Bronze Age and the site was inhabited by returning exiles from Babylon.  Herod the Great settled Jews here to populate his border cities.
