Rappelling at Nahal Jilabun

Rappelling at Nahal Jilbun

Nahal Jilabun is one of the most famous streams in the Golan Heights. With its steep descent from the Golan Heights Ridge into the Hula Valley, it makes its way into the Jordan River. This is a high stream with a flow of water that runs vigorously all year round. Along the stream is thick vegetation such as oak trees, figs, river hawthorns, and so much more. The view from the creek is particularly impressive, and attracts avid hikers from all over the country.

Once we are well up the stream, we’ll find two spectacular and robust waterfalls. The first is called ‘Deborah’s waterfall’, and awaiting at the bottom is a large and deep pool between the lava walls of the canyon. For the thrill seeker – this site is perfect for you! You can swim under the pummeling water, and enter a small cave just behind the falls. The second waterfall, ‘Jilabun waterfall’, is a jaw dropping 680 feet high and is the highest flowing waterfall in all of Israel. After taking in the awesome views, you also get to rappel down this running waterfall. As we make our way down, prepare to get soaked! If you are looking for a completely authentic experience, we invite you to take the challenge of this raw ‘canyoning’ experience! Once nearing the bottom, we will detach from our ropes and swim across the cool pool and take in the waterfall we just rappelled down!


This is a unique experience and a rare opportunity for extreme rappelling/abseiling in a clear and cold waterfall at the highest altitude with an incredibly stunning view. It is a charming route on the Western slopes of the Golan Heights, and is suitable for the entire family. There is no obligation to rappel at the Golan waterfall. For anyone who does not wish to rappel – they can opt to go down the marked path to the bottom of the fall. From there they can take pictures and watch the other participants rappel down the fall!
