Harissa | حريصا - Téléférique - Lebanon

Harissa is a mountain village in Lebanon which is located 650 meters above sea level. The village is located 20 km north of Beirut, and accessible from the coastal city of Jounieh either by road or by a nine-minute journey by a gondola lift, known as the "Téléférique".

One of Lebanon’s oldest and most visited tourist attractions, the gondolas of the Téléférique aerial cableway are a trip down memory lane, from a pioneering venture in 1965 to a beautifully preserved modern-day attraction offering breathtaking views of Jounieh and the surrounding city, the Téléférique is an impressive testimony to time gone by, a meter at a time.
