Belvoir fortress, also known as Kochav Hayarden in Hebrew is one of the most beautiful spots in Israel. The view from the top over the Jordan valley is stupendous!

If you are willing to walk uphill for a bit of a steepish climb it is more than worthwhile.

One of the most complete, if not the most complete, remains of the Templar's, this crusader fort was built to last!!
