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.

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
