When we say akkar, people think it is the end of the world, the ugly part of Lebanon. In fact this is complete ignorance about Lebanon as Akkar is a very beautiful region of Lebanon, but unfortunately the least advertised.
When you say you are from Akkar, the reaction is, el jeish kellou men Akkar. yes indeed, the highest numbers of Lebanese soldiers are from this caza, therefore, this land gave the highest number of martyrs.
To go to Akkar, you have to go through Jounieh, Jbeil, Tripoli. And to get to Kobbayyat, you have to drive over 30 minutes from Halba, the center of the caza of Akkar.
Let us take a virtual tour from the sky and from the land to Akkar.
We thank Kobbayat Festival association for preparing this enchanting video.
Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.
