Zahlé is the capital and the largest city of Beqaa Governorate, Lebanon. Explore Zahle's surroundings by going to Baalbeck (Baalbek Roman Ruins, Temples of Baalbek, &more), Shouf Cedars Reserve (in Barouk) and Atelier Assaf (in Warhanieh). And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Chateau Ksara, make a trip to Cardo Maximus (Aanjar), and explore the historical opulence of Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Zahle journey planning website.

Cairo, Egypt to Zahle is an approximately 6.5- hour combination of flight and car.
