Hexagon Pool

Meshushim2310 (34)The Hexagon Pool is a natural pool in the Meshushim Reserve, part of the Yehudiya Forest Nature Reserve, in central Golan Heights.

The pool, at the bottom of a canyon, is named in reference to the shape of the hexagonal basalt pillars that make up its walls. This geological formation was created by the slow cooling of layers of lava floes over a long period. When the lava solidified and cooled, it was split into polygonal shapes due to its contraction.
