  Monastery in the Kadisha Valley
by sachara

The 50 KM long Kadisha Valley starts at the coast near Batroun, but the most interesting and scenic part of this Holy Valley of the Maronite Christians is the higher 20 KM section.
We explored the Valley from Bcharre at the upper end of the Valley. Along a steep winding road at the south side of the valley we went deep down to the bottom of the gorge.
Here we visited some monasteries, like the Deir Mar Elisha and the Deir Qannoubin, made some nice walks and enjoyed the spectacular natural scenery with steep cliffs and waterfalls.

For more pictures and information see my Bcharre page.
