Mount Avital ( _he. הר אביטל) is a part of an extinguished volcano in the north east of the Golan Heights. The top of the mountain is 1204 meters above sea level.

The mountain is a part of a series of hills. Close in the north is Mount Bental, with a height of 1171 meters above sea level. In fact, the two mountains are two craters of just one volcano. Both mountains together form the Nature Reserve "Har Avital - Har Bental".

The mountain's name in arabic is "Tal Abu Nida" (تل ابو الندى).

The farm land inside the crater belongs to kibbutz El Rom.

On the top of Mount Avital is an IDF base of the Aman.
