Tourism in Lebanon

The Mzaar resort right above the village of Faraya is a large ski resort (top 2465m) with modern facilities and a luxurious Intercontinental hotel. It has 42 slopes and 80 kilometers of ski tracks. It’s about a 40 minutes drive from Beirut.

So you could on the perfect day, swim in the morning and ski in the afternoon. Close to Faraya you will find the village of  Faqra where you can see the ruins of a Phoenician temple and a Roman tower.

Next to Faqra there also is the spectacular natural  bridge of Kfardebian formed by wind and water erosion. It’s 38 m and it’s hard to believe the bridge has been made by nature, it looks so perfect.
