This splendid mountain resort is perched above the eastern end of the beautiful Kadisha Gorge. The town’s red-tiled roofs olive groves and mountain scenery remind us of a Greek village—or half a dozen other scenic spots along the eastern Mediterranean. Although it’s popular both as a cool summer retreat for coastal dwellers and a winter base for snow skiers Bcharre can seem downright dead in the off-season. Sightseeing options are limited to several churches and the Gibran Museum which pays tribute to Khalil Gibran Lebanon’s most famous author and Bcharre’s native son. Bcharre is also a convenient base for visiting the Cedars of Lebanon or hiking in the 30-mi-/50-km-long valley below. Note that the road leading east from Bcharre over the mountains into the Bekaa Valley (and to Baalbek) is open only during the summer. 40 mi/65 km northeast of Beirut.
