About 25 miles north of Bethsaida lies the site of ancient Caesarea Philippi at an elevation of some 1,150 feet above sea level. The water flowing from a nearby cavern is one of the main sources of the Jordan River and passes through a beautiful green plain. To the northeast, Mount Hermon rises to an elevation in excess of 9,200 feet above sea level.
