Lebanon - Highlands

Fabio Knoll

Award winning contributor Fabio Knoll created this amazing aerial tour of the highlands of Lebanon.  Though a small country, Lebanon has an enormously varied landscape, with two parallel mountain ranges running down much of its north-south extent.  The highest mountains are in the northern parts of the Mt. Lebanon range.  The peaks here top out at a maximum elevation of around 3k meters above sea level (about 10k ft.).  This area is also home to Lebanon's six ski resorts, some of whose slopes are featured in the video.

AirVuz content creator and pilot Nasr Khabbaz used a DJI Mavic Air drone to create this amazing aerial view of modern Beirut.  Situated on the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the Lebanese capital city is one of the oldest urban areas in the world.  More than 5,000 years old, at various times the city has played a central role in the affairs of the Middle East.  In the mid-1970's, following a several decade boom, Beirut was the epicenter of a brutal civil war which drew in most of the other powers of the region.

Flying with The Eagles Above Baskinta.


Contributor Digiweb created this beautiful drone video from one of the highest villages in Lebanon.  Baskinta is located about 45 km (a little under 30 miles) east of the Lebanese capital city Beirut, more or less in the geographic center of this small Middle Eastern country.  Its base elevation is around 1.3k meters or around 4.5k ft.  For reasons which will be apparent when you watch the video, it's become extremely popular with mountain bikers and hikers traveling from the coast of the country.
