The River Jordan Nr. Jericho

The river Jordan, the only artery which never ceases to irrigate the land, rises on the snow-covered slopes of Mount Hermon in Syria. The banks of the river are still green and fertile in its upper reaches. Its total fall is some 3,000 feet. When it flows through the Lake of Galilee, it is already 700 feet below sea level.
