Zahle holidays

Zahle is situated only 52 kilometres to the east of Beirut and located on the slopes of the Anti-Lebanon range at an altitude of 1,010 metres. It is the capital of the Beqaa, known as “Arouss El-Beqaa”, the bride of the Beqaa, and is much appreciated for its healthy climate and good food. It is also the seat of government for the Beqaa. Zahle’s many beautiful old houses can be appreciated on a leisurely walk around the town. The main attraction, however, is the Bardaouni river, which flows out of Mount Sannine through a wooded gorge shut in between tall perpendicular rocks. Along this branch of the Litani river, there is one open-air restaurant after another. All are protected from the sun by awnings and leafy trees, while streams, fountains and pools cool the air.
