Lebanon Mountains (Concise Encyclopedia)
Mountain range, Lebanon. Running parallel to the Mediterranean Sea coast, it is about 150 mi (240 km) long. The northern section is the highest part of the range and includes the loftiest peak, Qurnat al-Sawda', at 10,131 ft (3,088 m) in elevation. On its western slopes are the remaining groves of the famous cedars of Lebanon. The snowy peaks may have given Lebanon its name in antiquity; laban is Aramaic for white.
