Syria Off The Beaten Path: 173 reviews and 199 photos
This is a very beautiful town especially in the summer. There are plenty of Restaurants and hotels. The night life during summer time is great. The atmosphere and vibe of the place is incredible. Mashta Al helow is a collection of little villages with the main village is called Alkafroon. It can be a base to visit Hosn sulieman.
The name is very deceving, Although it is suppose to be a Mashta (Mashta is a place where people preffer to spend winter), it becomes empty and very cold in winter. So why was called Mashta?? It turns out that Al Helow Family used to spend the winter in town as they lived originally in a higher elevation.
You can reach Meshta Al Helow by Micro bus either from Tartus or Hems.
