Hula Lake Park, north of the Sea of Galilee, lies in the center of the Hula Valley in the Upper Galilee bordered by mountain ranges, the Golan to the east and the Naphtali Range to the west. More than 500 million birds, waterfowl, birds of prey, and songbirds of 390 species including twenty globally-endangered species, migrate through this area of the Hula Valley in the spring and fall.
This is one of the best places in Israel to see cranes, pelicans, storks, and hundreds of other bird species. It is on one of the world's most significant bird migration routes through the northern part of the Syrian-African Rift Valley between Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Lake Agamon is in the center of the park.
