The Valley of Springs extends north to the Jordan Valley and South to Bezek Creek. It runs from the Gilboa Mountains in the West to the Jordan River in the East. It is one of the beautiful regions in Israel.
The abundance of springs (40 in number) brought residents to the valley throughout human history. The number of springs is surprising, given the warm climate and low rainfall. The answer lies in the geological structure of the Gilboa Mountains, rising above the valley. This leads to a wonderful variation of crops throughout the seasons, and a wealth of fascinating historical and archaeological sites dotting the region.
