The Gamla Nature Reserve offers visitors a rare combination of nature and history, with fascinating views and landscapes. From one lookout point, a nesting colony of vultures is visible on the sheer cliffs; nearby is another lookout point that offers an impressive view of the ancient city of Gamla. Surrounded on both sides by river canyons, this city tells the story of unique heroism shown by an ancient Jewish community from the time of the Second Temple.
One can visit the reserve and do any number of hikes (one path leads down to the ancient city, with its visible walls and synagogue; another leads to a scenic waterfall lookout point). For non-hikers (including families with strollers), the reserve is suitable for a pleasant walk between the lookout points, which are wheelchair accessible.
