Lebanon Travel Guide
Sandwiched between the mountains is the fertile Bekaa Valley that runs parallel to the coast for 92miles at an elevation of 3280ft. In spite of the demise of the legendary cedar trees that covered the entire country in Biblical time, Lebanon is still the most densely wooded nation in the Middle East. Along with the few remaining high altitude cedar forests are pine trees, which cover the slopes down to the coastal plains where citrus fruit and banana tress are widely cultivated. Essentially Lebanon has three separate climatic zones – the coastal strip with cool rainy winters and very hot summers; the mountains with their alpine climate and the Bekaa Valley with hot dry summers and icy cold winters.
