Celebrate Lebanon’s natural heritage by visiting these sites!

Yesterday, the world celebrated Earth Day which is an annual event that demonstrates support for environmental protection. Lebanon has a rich natural heritage that includes lakes, forests, caves, waterfalls, including Kadisha Valley which is a

World Heritage Site

. Unfortunately, new buildings and the garbage crisis are harming our environment. We gathered Lebanon’s top natural wonders to remind you that these sites will be eventually affected if we don’t take care of our environment enough. Let’s protect our natural heritage!
