To be honest, no specific amount of photos can deliver the beauty of Lebanon, but after wandering around my country ever since I was a teenager, I thought it was time to compile a list of beautiful photos and places around Lebanon.
No matter how many times I visit the same places or discover new locations, I am always in awe of how beautiful the different sceneries present to me. I am proud to say that I have been to a lot of places in Lebanon, sharing my experiences and photos along the way; but, I still have a lot more to discover in this tiny place I call home.
And, there’s no better tourist than being one in your own country.
Lebanon is next level beautiful, so here are 33 of my favorite photos that I’m hoping will make you fall in love in Lebanon as much as I.
All photos have been created by Haytham and me on our many adventures together throughout Lebanon. You can check out more of his work here.
A 20 minute hike to get to Kfarhelda’s main waterfall attraction. You can also enjoy a couple of smaller ones along the trail.

We try to hike here at least once a year, in different seasons. We have seen Wadi al Salib in snow, covered in autumn leaves, and full of flowers & petals. No wonder it’s mom’s favorite hiking trail.
