Hermon Mountain from Rashaya

..... ....This high mountain reaches a height of 2840 metres above the Mediterranean Sea but 3200 metres above the Ghor Valley dug out below the Bekaa.

At present there are major projects under preparation for investment in this region and for its exploitation, with high roads, skiing stations and various tourist attractions.

Meanwhile, how can one reach the top of this mountain? This is possible only after the snows have melted in the month of June, starting from the village of Shebaa or the town of Rashaya in a Range Rover and climbing steeply for two or three hours. One crosses valleys of vineyards and passes by numerous springs of water and by the imposing remains of Canaanite and Roman temples and by Crusader ruins...... ....
