2/ Day 1:#chouwen river.

The drive is amazing through the mountains. The 45 min #Hike through forest to get to the river is rewarding.

The whole area is the birthplace of the #legend of Adonis & Astarte.

@Jabal_Moussa thank you for taking care of this piece of heaven. ImageImage
3/ Day 1: @EhdenHorsh

The beautiful mountainous city of Ehden offered wonderful scenic views and elaborate trails through pine trees.

Super diverse ecosystem of fauna and flora.

5/ Day 2: Qammoua

1 hr drive from Jabalna Ecolodge, at 1,300m of altitude is a wonderful scenic spot overlooking the Akkar valley.

6/ Day 2: Qammoua, Azer Forest

At 1,600m altitude, the Azer forest is thousands of years old and is rated as one of the most beautiful iron oaks forests in the world.

7/ Day 2: Pyramid of Hermel

Known locally as kamouh el hermel, no one really knows who built the 20 meter + tall pyramid that has been dated to 2nd century BC.

It is sad to see the structure vandalised by graffiti.

8/ Day 2: Baalbeck Temples

It is awe inspiring to stand in one of the greatest leftover of the Romans empire. The temple of Jupiter and the temple of Bacchus are a wonderful achievement of the human spirit.
