Top Faraya Hotels
Bordering the east of the Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon is expected to evoke the sunny beaches and old historic port cities like Sidon and Tyre.
Maybe less likely known are the Lebanese towering, snowy mountains, 5 stars hotel and the ski resorts; as a matter of fact, the name Lebanon originates from the Semitic word “lbn” which means “white” in reference to the snow-covered peaks.
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite was able to catch yearly photos of the snow in Lebanon, proving its name of “white”; the image often represents the country’s 2 mountain ranges, Jebel Liban and Jabal ash Sharq. (Jebel or/and jabal are synonyms of “mountain” in Arabic).
Note that both mountain ranges are seasons-round covered with snow; throughout the year 2011, a late-winter storm coated the mountains with a few meters of white snow as stated by local news and domestic reports of weather forecasts.
The snow is not an unusual factor in Lebanon; ski resorts around Faraya hotels are open about 3 or 4 months per year; the 2010 winter pushed the limits as ski resorts couldn’t open the ski resorts for skiers before the midst of December due to a climate change… the ski resorts were expected to remain open to skiers until the month of April, but these expectations were too good to be true.
