Mount Hermon is the highest point in the Anti-Lebanon range, though its position is actually southwest of the main range. Hermon is a massive, isolated mountain, whose snow-capped crest stretches twenty miles and towers above the surrounding countryside. Many Christians believe Hermon's summit to be the site of the transfiguration of Jesus. Its traditional religious significance is evident in the ruins of many ancient temples that surround the mountain. Today, however, a ski resort has been developed on its slopes.
