Set in the heart of the Batroun Mountains, Douma bears all the hallmarks of a traditional Lebanese village, with its quaint houses, noise-free streets and charming souk. Douma is located around 80km from Beirut, a one-and-a-half to two-hour drive. The old souk of Douma is picture perfect. You can stroll around and pick up some local specialties, including halawa, olive oil and homemade jams. At over 1,000m above sea level, Douma offers breathtaking views and great hiking trails. Visitors can explore the nearby village of Bechaaleh, where there are olive trees dating back to thousands of years.
