Walnut River (Nahr el Jawz) comes from the depths of the Lebanese mountains then turns southward and empties into the sea between Batroun and the Hamath block.

The river itself comes from two springs bubbling up above Tannourine. The beauty of Nahr El Jawz is at its climax during spring.

Grab this opportunity to witness nature in all its colors. The wild flowers are so colorful along the river bank, spreading red, purple, yellow and white sparkles all over the ground.

The water at this time of year flows so vigorously that it fills the air with a loud splashing sound. You will be charmed by the trees along the river banks, above all by the walnut trees which grow in preference close to water and which have given the river their name.
