Lebanon’s Jezzine is one of the country’s most beautiful districts. Surrounded by mountain peaks and pine forests, it is one of Saida’s summer resorts and tourist destinations. Not only does it offer stunning natural beauty, but the area is also home to major religious sites and ancient ruins.
The area of Jezzine is also remarkable for its rich agricultural diversity. Although years of political difficulties have left the area’s tremendous, promise largely untapped, however, thanks to sustainability efforts this is beginning to change.
Over the last few years, initiatives to capitalize on Jezzine’s potential have been coming to fruition. On the whole, these revolve around the principle of nature tourism meaning responsible travel to natural areas that simultaneously conserves the environment and improves the welfare of local people. Nature tourism is especially suitable for an area like Jezzine, whose inhabitants are overwhelmingly proud of their home. Through this, the emphasis of travel is focused on mingling with the local community. Travelers are also made aware of local concerns such as the conservation of natural areas, as well as endangered and threatened heritage.
