Located in the heart of the fertile Bekaa region, Ammiq is a peaceful and picturesque village with a gorgeous panoramic view of the colorful Bekaa plains, extending to great lengths.

With its natural surroundings and rich ecological diversity, Ammiq could be defined as a gem with its green lands and extensive flora and fauna, as the village is home to the Ammiq Wetland, the last significant freshwater wetland in Lebanon.

The swamps, which were turned into a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 2005, are home to one of the most important bird migration routes in the world, with more than 250 bird recorded species.

You will also get to discover glorious pine and oak trees, lakes, buffalos, and a fascinating view of the vineyards around it.

When exploring Ammiq, people can visit the Mar Jeryes church, which was built in 1865, and the ruins of the old village.

Visitors can also have a nice day hiking from the Barouk Cedars Nature Reserve down to Ammiq and enjoy a day of rooming around neighboring towns, such as Zahle, Taanayel, and the Qaraoun lake.

If you want to spend the night, you can take a short trip and head to Kab Elias, where you can stay at Domaine de Chouchène, a gorgeous guesthouse, a Lebanese restaurant, and an outdoor venue surrounded by lovely greenery. For more info, contact 70 168 863.
