Qammouaa, Aakkar district

Qammouaa forest, much of which is a nature reserve. Located at the extreme end of the Mount Lebanon range in the Akkar area, Qammouaa is considered an important tourist centre. The surrounding heights rise to 2,454 meters and there are forests that are remarkable because of the abundance of such trees as junipers, hairy oaks, cypresses, cedars and Cilician firs. Judging by the cedars to be found there, geologists say that these historic forests are at least a thousand years old. The plains of Qammouaa lie at 1,450 metres altitude in a sort of depression between the mountains.
