Lower Galilee

Lower Galilee is called that way because it is less mountainous than the Upper Galilee. The highest peak of the region is Mount Kamon (1962 ft) and, of course, the famous Mount Tabor. (1929 ft)The region is situated on the south of the Galilee region bordered by Beth Hakerem, Jordan Rift, Zebulun Valleys and by the Sea of Galilee in the west. According to Roman Jewish historian Josephus, Galilee means district but there are other opinions, for instance it can also derive from the word gal, which means wave. The green hills and mountains of Galilee indeed remind the waves.
