Qaraoun is an artificial lake located in West Bekaa. The lake is fed by the Litani River, the longest river in Lebanon. It is recognized as a resting site for around 20,000 migratory birds crossing the Bekaa Valley in early summer and late fall.
The lake is a popular destination for families during the summer months thanks to the delightful boats that provide trips for visitors.
A hike around the lake will take you into agricultural lands on the eastern side where you can wander around olive orchards.
