 Horch Ehden

A mythical place, a real emblem of the Lebanese forest heritage, Horch Ehden is one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Lebanon. In collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and the UNDP (United Nations Development Program), this place enhances the value of the environment and the biodiversity.

The reserve is 3.5 km far from the North of Ehden: a calm and prosperous village of the Middle-Ages that is famous for its Souk.

Covered in snow, or touched by sun rays, the forest mountain mass is exceptionally rich. It is certainly the ideal place to stroll in all seasons.
Moreover, the Lebanese writer Jabbour Douaihy won the Saint-Exupéry Prize in May 2000 thanks to the book he wrote about this famous nature reserve: “The Soul of Horch Ehden Forest” (L’âme de la forêt Horch Ehden).
