DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
The Lebanese surname “Yahchouchi” derives from this village.
Janneh, as the name reveals, is a piece of heaven on earth.
Nahr Ibrahim or “River of Abraham” is also known as river Adonis (river of immortal love) relative to the myth of Adonis and Astarte in Phoenician mythology. Today, it is one of the tourist attractions in Lebanon, being the place where the ancient god Adonis died, and the river became red with his blood.
The valley offers a varied landscape and it’s considered one of the most enchanting for hiking in Jbeil Caza.
