Lebanon is a country with a rugged terrain, featuring both highs and lows. The small nation is located along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean sea, and is home to a number of mountain ranges.
The entirety of the country of Lebanon is only about 10,000 square kilometers, making it a relatively small country. However, the high peaks of the mountains can present some of the most steep and challenging climbs.
While the country is otherwise known for its seasides and nightlife, there exist a wealth of natural landmarks waiting to be explored, such as the famous Jeita Grotto, an underground cave system and geological treasure.
The rugged terrain of Lebanon also offers stunning views. From the mountain peaks, one can enjoy picturesque views of the Mediterranean sea below, as well as views of the lush green forested valleys that dot the landscape.
The highest point in Lebanon is Qurnat as Sawda' peak, standing at an elevation of 3,090 meters. It is located in the northern part of Mount Lebanon.
