Lebanon is a mostly mountainous country, east and west, separated by the fertile Bekaa Valley. A narrow coastal strip of land fronts the Mediterranean Sea.
The Lebanon Mountains are central and west, while the Anti-Lebanon Mountains stretch across its eastern border with Syria.
The highest point of Lebanon is Qurnat as Sawda' which peaks at 10,128 ft. (3,087 m).
Over a dozen minor rivers flow from the mountains, with the Litani the most significant, as it irrigates the heart of the fertile Bekaa Valley.
