How Is Lebanon Different from Other Middle Eastern Countries?


Many people have the wrong idea about Lebanon. Yes, this country located along the Mediterranean Sea is part of the Middle East, but you won't find any camels or desert-dwelling nomadic tribes there. In fact, the country that 4.5 million Lebanese call home is the only Middle Eastern nation without a desert within its borders. Instead, there are mountains, fertile valleys that produce fruits and vegetables (much like California), and, when it gets cold enough, there is snow, especially at higher elevations.

A country like no other:

Summers are long, hot, and humid in Lebanon, and the winters are typically cold and wet. You could take a refreshing dip in the sea in the morning and hit the ski slopes in the afternoon.

Christians are welcome in Lebanon and amount to about 40 percent of the population.

Relics from the Roman Empire abound, including the tallest Roman columns found anywhere in the world.

Commissioned by the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism, We spent 5 summer months filming Lebanon from Above, including its rural, urban, cultural touristic and historical location, as well as the amazing number of festivals.

The idea was to show Lebanon's beauty, diversity and wealth from another angle (above), in order to encourage and promote international and domestic tourism.

My main personal goal is to remind us all that Lebanon is not all about problems, political turmoil, trash...etc but is first and foremost a country that has so much to offer on such a small portion of land, and is still, in spite of everything, truly beautiful.

Maybe by seeing this video, people who lost sight of what Lebanon truly is, will have newfound optimism and strength to participate in steering the country in the right direction, to understand that it is their country to love and protect.

_____________________________________________________

We filmed from mid June to early November and covered Mount Lebanon, Beirut, Southern Lebanon, the Bekaa, Baalbek and North Lebanon.

We received amazing support from the Ministry of Tourism, as well as the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Defense, the Lebanese Air Force and the Lebanese Army Intelligence.

From the beginning, a social media campaign was created on Instagram, under @riseabovelebanon, which yielded a lot of interest and followers, reaching an organic 12,000 followers so far.

The book, also titled "Rise Above Lebanon", was released on 2 December 2015. it is a hardcover photography book of the highest standard, with 200 pages of images of Lebanon from Above and is available in all major bookshops in Lebanon.

The video, of a duration of 5 minutes was released by Live Love Lebanon and the Ministry of Tourism on 4 February 2016 and immediately went viral, with over about 2 million views as well as over 40,000 shares, 12,000 likes and hundreds of comments (99% of which are positive).

The result is this video of 5 Minutes.

Guide To Lebanon:

Lebanon offers plenty: from ancient Roman ruins, to well preserved castles, limestone caves, historic Churches and Mosques, beautiful beaches nestled in the Mediterranean Sea, Restaurants, world renown Lebanese cuisine, nonstop nightlife and discotheques, to mountainous ski resorts.

Qadisha, one of the deepest and most beautiful valleys in Lebanon, is indeed a world a part. At the bottom of this wild steep-sided gorge runs the Qadisha River whose source is in the Qadisha Grotto at the foot of the Cedars. And above the famous Cedar grove stands Qornet el Sawda, Lebanon's highest peak. This is truly Heaven on Earth.

Agelbert NOTE: The Valley of the God is now a rather cold and inhospitable place located at the boundary of the arctic circle on Baffin Island, Canada. I believe this is one of those rare places that, due to rapidly increasing temperatures throughout the year, will have thriving vegetation soon. There will still be the problem of the long, though much milder, winters with almost no sunlight, but due to the much higher CO2 content of Hothouse Earth, humans might be able to survive there by growing food crops and storing the surplus for winter consumption. If they can make use of geothermal energy for power, they could grow crops with artificial light in greenhouses during the winter months. If you are young and adventurous, check out the real estate on Baffin Island. I'll stay right here in Vermont, because I am neither.   



This is a photo of the Valley of The God in Auyuittuq National Park, Baffin Island, Canada. The rocky valley winds down the center of the image while shark tooth shaped mountains rise on either side of the valley floor. Mount Thor is visible in the distance. Light illuminates the clouds with touches of gold against a blue sky. Overall tones are browns and greys with some ochre and white snow on higher elevations. The photo was taken by Will Christiansen (SKYFOLK). More of his work can be seen in this Medium post or you can download the Baffin Island Expedition theme from the Microsoft Store.
