The Blissful Danniye District is a destination that will mesmerise and fascinate as it holds an excellent ecological environment, filling the district is a variety of orchards, groves, and woodlands. The first stop is the Sfireh Temple, constructed in the second century A.D. during the reign of Roman Emperor Septimius Severus. It is the largest of its kind within Lebanon, so take some time to wander and explore, as an optional extra, you can choose to hike through the pine forest that surrounds the temple, it will add an extra two to four kilometres to your trip. The Zahlan Grotto is the next destination on our journey, this cave has calcite formations which cover both walls and ceilings, these natural formations make this location especially fascinating. It is considered to be one of the largest in the region, measuring upwards of 200 metres and consisting of three parts; the current cave, lower cave, and a third cave at the bottom of the valley. While exploring the Grotto, we will also be venturing over the Zahlan bridge, which has some utterly exquisite views of the surrounding forest lands. The final location we visit will be the 40s mountain bridge, which has some of the most captivating views within Lebanon, this is truly the destination to take some time to embrace your surroundings. You will also be offered an optional extra three-kilometre hike along the edge of the mountain, which is definitely worth the extra time and effort.
