Growing apples in Lebanon? Don’t apples require colder weather? Yes, they do. However, Lebanon has far more diversity than the beaches and banana plantations found along the coast.
It gets quite cold up in the mountains and areas such as Bcharre and Ehden are surrounded by apple orchards.
Even late in May, the road above where these pictures were taken was still closed due to snow.
Apples to bananas. Beaches to ski resorts. Oscar Niemeyer architectural creations to ancient ruins. Scantily clad club girls enhanced with cosmetic surgery to armed militants. Lebanon has everything.
