Lebanon Traveler - - FOCUS ON -

Make a week­end of your Jbeil es­cape. Af­ter ex­plor­ing the city, head out into the sur­round­ing na­ture, which is among some of the coun­try’s most pic­turesque. (ben­tael­re­serve.org) is lo­cated in the hills above Jbeil, only 8km away. It’s the re­gion’s first pro­tected area de­vel­oped by lo­cal vil­lagers in the ‘80s. The re­serve vil­lage is si­t­u­ated among a for­est of oak and pine trees and is rich in cul­tural her­itage, with many vil­lagers in­volved in art, phi­los­o­phy and ar­ti­sanal prod­ucts.
