Sir El Dennieh - Nabh El Sukkar.

..... ....Visitors may admire the Zehlan Cave, long forgotten but now cleaned up and made new.
The dam of Lake Ouyoun el-Samak, 500 metres long and 75 wide, feeds an electric power station and provides water to irrigate an extensive region. Kornet el-Saouda, the highest point in the Middle East with its soaring 3088 metres, gives one a splendid view of the isle of Rouad and the coast. The Citadel Mount overlooking Sugar Spring reaches an altitude of 2400 metres. Two zones have been classed as nature reserves, one at Mounts Ijass and Arbahin and the other at Jerd Marhin, stretching to Gehenna Gorge. They contain millions of trees of every kind, cedars, oaks, poplars, cypresses, pines, firs, larches and junipers, to mention only some. A highway linking Sir to Hermel will be completed in the year 2006 and will open up regions still virgin and rising up to 2500 metres
