Mount Peres (Arabic: تل الفرس‎, Tall al-Faras, Hebrew: הר פֶּרֶס‎, Har Peres) is a volcanic mountain located in central Golan Heights, some 5.5 kilometres (3.4 mi) aest of Moshav Keshet.[1] Its highest point is 929 metres (3,048 ft) above sea level, or about 200 metres (660 ft) above ground level. The mountain is the southernmost of a series of dormant volcanoes that stretch up to the northern parts of the Golan Heights. On top of the mountain is a well-preserved crater, 200 meters in diameter and 35 metres (115 ft) deep.
