The Lebanon Mountains are a mountain range that stretches from the north of Lebanon about 160 km parallel to the Mediterranean coast and practically crosses the entire national territory to the southwest.

The mountains are the eponym of Lebanon, whose population protected itself here against the opponents approaching from the east. The mountains served in particular as a retreat for religious communities such as Druze, Alawite and numerous Christian groups.
