Nahr Ibrahim - Janneh.

..... ....Today, the challenge of this river has been accepted and it has been brought under control. Electric power stations have captured its surging waters and market gardens bring forth their produce wherever level ground extends along its banks. It has become the joyous servant of the people of the valley, at the same time offering sightseers and lovers of nature shaded retreats through which its tumultuous forces tumble and roar.
There is one particularly Arcadian spot, El Janeh or El Firdous (Paradise), where this river gives generously of itself above its pebbles through the reeds and verdant shrubbery. One may enjoy the shade of the remains of the pillars of the Roman aqueduct that crossed the torrent to convey its waters to the city of Byblos, but one must not forget to go first up and then down the elegant Arab bridge only a short walk from the shore
