The historic caves of Habis were used as a hideout back in Roman and Byzantine eras.
Back then, reaching the caves was a difficult feat. But once inside, it's possible to reach any cave through interconnecting tunnels
Now, the caves are a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a sunny day in the shade.
A spectacular landscape framed by the caves overlooks Wadi el Habis, Bekaa valley, and Anti Lebanon mountains.
Sleeping bats were dispersed inside one of the caves.
Spring flowers were all around, and some still didn't open their petals, like the one below.
We climbed through the rocks and reached the top of the valley.
Climbing to the top is a fun challenge, and it's easy to walk along the crest.
The peaks offered even wider angles on the landscape.
With such a dense landscape, I like to spot fields in the distance using my zoom lens.
I look forward to safely exploring more caves in the area next time!
