A beautiful hike in the middle part of the Banias stream. It includes a hike to the inverted Syrian tank and a walk on the route on the banks of the Banias.
The starting point is in the cemetery of Kibbutz Snir. From there it is a descent of about a quarter of an hour to the inverted Syrian tank. Why is the tank there? During the Six-Day War, it was part of the Syrian attack on Kibbutz Dan. During the battle with the Israelis, the tank retreated, fell into the stream, and remained there.
From there, repeat on the black trail until the intersection with the words "Sh’aar Yeshuv" written on it and walk along the path. The route overlooks the stream, sometimes it is on the banks of the creek. Parts of it are exposed to the sun and in parts, there is a feeling of walking in a Thai jungle.
From here you can decide whether to return or continue until Sh’aar Yeshuv.
Please note - the Banias flows vigorously along the entire route. You cannot swim in these areas - it is very dangerous.
