Aammiq Village is one of my favorite villages in Lebanon. Located in the West Bekaa between two mountain trails, it is famous for its beautiful nature and its Wetland surface which stretches for 280 hectares. Aammiq is considered as the last and largest remaining significant wetland in Lebanon, a remnant of much more extensive marshes and lakes that once existed in the Beqa’a Valley and the Village’s Swamp lies on one of the most important bird migrations’ routes in the world with over 250 species recorded in the area. You will also find a wide variety of animals there including gazelles.
Photographer Ali Badawi captured the beauty of Aamiq few years in a 150+ pictures album which I invite you to check out [here].
I’m only sharing some of my favorite pictures here:
