Jabal Moussa

Located in the region of Keserwan-Jbeil, Jabal Moussa (jabalmoussa.org) was recognized as the third biosphere in Lebanon in 2009, as part of the UNESCO Network of Biosphere Reserves under Man & Biosphere (MAB) program. The area is a huge stretch of natural beauty including villages such as Yahchouch, Ghbeleh, Qehmez, Nah red Dahab, Ain el Delbeh, Al Iibre and Chouwan. The vast landscape is richly diverse and its mixture of ecological systems gives life to a variety of species of plants and animals, hence it’s become an important research site. The Biosphere Reserve organizes hikes through the reserve and the tours take a responsible tourism approach including lunch prepared by the local community in Mchati and an overnight stay in the local Dimitriades Guesthouse (71 307301) in Ghbeleh Village. Jabal Moussa Ecotourism Manager Christelle Abou Chabka can book the hikes, a local guide and lunch (71 944405, 09 643464). christelle.ach@jabalmoussa.org).
