The origin of its name comes from the Aramaic for “holy.” It has been a sacred spot for Christian monks since just a few centuries after the prophet Jesus walked on Earth.
But, who cares? Qadisha Valley is an incredibly beautiful green paradise buried deep in the Lebanese mountains. That’s what matters and that’s why you should go as well.
We left at 5 a.m. to drive north and catch the sunrise en route
And then we drove a bit more … quite a bit more … and reached the valley
We decided to go visit the famous Colombian monk; Dario Escobar
Dario was friendly, especially with the ladies …
Anyway, we kept hiking
The place reminds me of Jurassic Park tbh
Just without the dinosaurs, unfortunately
