Mount Hermon (Arabic: جبل الشيخ‎, Jabal al-Shaykh, "Mountain of the Chief"; Hebrew: הר חרמון‎, Har Hermon, "Mount Hermon") is a very high mountain cluster in the Eastern Lebanon Mountain Range. Its summit sits on the border between Syria and Lebanon.[1] At 2,814 m (9,232 ft) above sea level, it is the highest point in Syria.[2] The southern slopes of Mount Hermon extend into the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights. Most of the mountain peaks are snowy in the winter.
