Is Mount Hermon a volcano?

Asked 2 years ago

When I went up Mt Hermon, I noticed a lake that looked like a crater. Unfortunately, there was no one around to ask, so I figured to find a forum to ask on. What are the odds that Mt Hermon is a dormant volcano?

On Mount Hermon, we find Lake Ram (Birkat Ram). This lake formed inside an extinct volcano, meaning it is a volcano that is not expected to erupt. The lake forms a natural water reservoir, for nearby villages. Druze legends have it as the eye of an old lady, watching over her husband, Mount Hermon.
