Jabal Terbol is a hill that rises at 1206 meters in North Lebanon, a 30-minute drive from Tripoli.
Lebanese journalist and politician Jean Obeid is known to have a residence there. It is also the location of an enormous real estate project called El Mirador De Terbol.
El Mirador was created by a Lebanese entrepreneur from Spain who wanted to bring all the vibes of living abroad into one private compound, protected from the outside environment and chaos.
It’s an ambitious venture, to say the least, but one that continues to shape up quite amazing.
No wonder that the hill has been selected for this project. Jabal Terbol has been a hiking destination for nature adventurers from Tripoli and the area seeking outdoor thrill and amazing views.
Overlooking the lands below, it has a panoramic view as far as the eye can see. You can get an eyeful of both the sea and the mountains.
Cafes & Restaurants
El Mirador has two spots where one can enjoy a nice meal or a coffee and shisha all while looking out at the scenic beauty.
People can sit inside or outside without compromising the view. The food is also said to be top-notch and the customer service great.
The roads of this massive private village are clean and smooth, something we can’t claim to have much of around the country. Driving through should be an enjoyable ride while basking in the views.
In winter, one gets a totally new experience while visiting the place, with the snow-capped mountains in the backdrop, the chilly breeze, and calm music in the car.
The road remains clear during winter for a nice ride when heading to the village for a warm cup of tea or a nice meal.
Along the road within the compound, many beautiful homes stand proud of their Lebanese traditional architecture, with private yards and swimming pools.
The project is not finalized to its ultimate goal yet. The owner has a major plan for it, and its development is ongoing accordingly.
The planned development consists of building a school within the premises, and also shopping centers, parks, sports fields, a horseback riding arena, a hotel, affordable apartments, bungalows, and more.
All contained in one protected area, making it touristic, commercial, residential, and recreational. In that, a new town appears to be fully birthing in Lebanon.
