We'll spend a few days hiking in Wadi Qadisha, then would like to get to Hamah. I'd prefer to get there in one day, but not if it would exhaust us. Our thoughts:
Service Taxi Bcharre to Baalbek (90 min).
Explore Baalbek (2 to 3 hours)
Bus to Qaa to Homs to Hamah.
I can't find information on how long this route would take, or if there would be busses around 2 pm in the afternoon out of Baalbek.
If this doesn't work we'll go via Tripoli, spending the night in Tartus
(and I'll cross-post in Lebanon forum. Thanks).
