Alon Valley is the bottom of the former volcanoes flooded by an ancient sea. Its tuff base was washed and the tough bottom of the valley was opened out. It should be considered to be a fertile valley since its volcanic origin, but drainage does not allow intensive agriculture. This is the reason for intensive cow growing in the region.

Uploaded by Evgeny Praisman
Alsat Hadra is a place revered by the Druze in the Alon Valley. The Druze community from villages of Usafia and Dalya cultivated land of the Alon valley for growing grain. In 1840, a peasant uprising broke out against Turkish rulers. During the suppression of this rebellion, the all-region and Druze villages were severely damaged and people injured. In memory of these events, the woman Alsa initiated in 2003 created a revered place here. She considered by locals from Usafia as providence and a medicine man.
