LAKE QARAOUN

Lebanon Traveler - - HIDDEN GEMS -

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.
