  • lake

Qaraoun, West Bekaa district

Situated about 22km southwest of Chtaura and just west of Qaraoun village, the huge Qaraoun lake was created by the erection of the Litani River Dam in 1959 and provides electricity and irrigation to the area. Although the lake is not for swimming, boats can take you around in summer or you can enjoy the spectacular views in one of the fresh fish restaurants located on the western side of the lake.
