Tel Hai, Israel, is a small settlement in walking distance to the kibbutz Kfar Giladi, located in Upper Galilee in northern Israel. Around six hundred fifty people are living there. The economy of Kfar Giladi is based on nurseries, a quarry, a hotel, and agriculture (such as growing apples and avocados). The history of the Jewish community dates back to the early twentieth century, when members of Hashomer, a defense organization in the early twentieth century, founded this kibbutz. The area is also historically significant, as it was one of the first battlegrounds for the conflict between Zionists and Arabs in the early twentieth century. Even if the number of civil combatants was small, the influence of the conflict on the Israeli culture was remarkable for decades.

Tel Hai is very small. Besides a Tel Hai, Israel hostel, you can find a hotel in the kibbutz Kfar Giladi. Additional hotels are available in the region and spread out in smaller towns (but the price level is quite high). Therefore, it is the best option to book some beds in a Tel Hai, Israel hostel if you are on a tight budget. Free Wi-Fi is included, the facilities are rather new, and the rooms are clean. If you want to choose from a bigger number of hostels, check out the nearby Golan Heights.

The Roaring Lion, also known as the Lion of Judah, is a national monument located at the Tel Hai Memorial. This national symbol is a well-known sculpture to many Israelis. The lion is dedicated to Joseph Trumpeldor, a Zionist activist and war hero who fell during the battle of Tel Hai.

Around twelve kilometres east of Tel Hai is the beautiful Tel Dan nature reserve. The area, where half of the Jordan's waters originate, is perfect for some relaxation and walks. All the trails begin next to the river and you can also visit an aqueduct that once transported water to flour mills along the stream. Banias Nature Reserve is around fourteen kilometres east of Tel Hai. The reserve boasts historically significant sights as well as natural beauty. You can see the ruins of ancient cities and the famous Banias Waterfall, which is the biggest waterfall in Israel.
