Al Jaware7

Just about 20 km (13 miles) from the north east of Lattakieh port, you can reach one of the most beautiful lakes in Syria; the lake of 16 Tishreen (16 November), this lake has its magical views surrounded by plants and forests.
It's also a natural reservation; I saw many kinds of birds that you rarely encounter in other Syrian regions.
The lake is also surrounded by restaurants and one hotel, the restaurants carry the same name of many Syrians series that have been shot here as Al Jawareh, Al Bawassel, Al Dawajen...
The only thing we really miss to have in this lake and in all Syrian lakes are "water activities", as yachts for example.

that would be cool (water activities).. Have you ever been to Assad Lake by Sad il furat? I've always wondered what it looked like, especially since it's a man made lake.

more water to study,I just learned from a magazine how fishes invade man made lakes,the post explained how ducks caught fishes' eggs in their feathers and bring them to new waters.Nature is splendid.

That's a great view. They really should introduce some water activities there. Oh and I liked the part about Al Dawajen :)

lol @ Al Dawajen!

A quick correction, Amr: The lake's name is either 6 October or 16 November; nothing happened on a 16 October.

Hi Amr,
I am also a Syrian living abroad. One thing that makes me feel really guilty is that I never hiked in Syria! so, can I contact you as well 8/
