I really don't know what did we expected when we went to the border, but this is nothing special, it is just a short view to Lebanon.

Just wondering to mark as done and visited on the way. Not really something with your time, unless you want to brag you've seen into Lebanon.

OK, it isn't really that interesting. Just a closed border gate. But you do get to peek through and see Lebanon on the other side.

I was expecting fortifications and lots of soldiers - instead there's a gate across the road and a lone soldier. Nothing to see on the other side. However the soldier was very friendly and you could have a photo with him which was kind of...More

Those on the other side- be it the Lebanese Army or Hizbollah- are not at peace and have no relationship with the State of Israel. So thrill seekers can stand at this secured uneventful border where no actions have taken place. Yes. it's a bit...More

There's been so many wars and tension on the is Israel-Lebanon border that it's awfully fun to walk up to the border fence and look on the other side. Granted there's not much to see but that's not the point. It's just exciting to be...More

This Israeli/Lebanese boarder was able to be used, up until 1967, which is when the Arab-Israeli war ended. Now this is as close as anyone can get to Israeli/Lebanon boarder, with UN officials, protecting the peace and "no mans land" between the boarder fences. As...More
