The Upper Galilee is a geographical-political term in use since the end of the Second Temple period, originally referring to a mountainous area overlapping the present northern Israel and southern Lebanon, its borders being the Litani river in the north, the Mediterranean Sea in the west, the Beit HaKerem valley and Lower Galilee in the south and the Jordan river and Hula Valley in the east. In present-day Israeli terminology, the term is mainly used in reference to the northern part of the Galilee, that is under Israeli sovereignty. (via Freebase)
