It's hard to imagine, but with a few hours driving you can go from splashing around in the Mediterranean Sea to be standing in snow in the Mt. Lebanon Range and breathing cool air. They even have a ski resort here if you fancy some skiing on the slopes of Lebanon's highest mountain, Qornet as-Sawda (3090m). It's a breath taken drive from the coast, that takes you along winding roads with magnificent view over deep valleys where clouds come rolling in (including gorgeous Qadisha valley). It also here the last remaining groves of their beloved Cedar trees grow, but you might wonder why souvenirs are still made out of them.
Note that the mountain range can not be crossed a good part of the year due to snow.
