Oyoun Orghosh is a name in plural form given to a high mountain region with an abundance of springs of water on the Eastern face of Cornet es-Sawda, the highest mountain of Lebanon that dominates the Beqaa Valley.
The landscape is somewhat bare of vegetation, relieved only by a few scattered trees, either junipers or Mediterranean oaks, and without the usual cultivated terraces that climb most Lebanese mountain slopes however steep. There are only a few patches of plough land, for the area was never easy to reach in the past.
Oyoun Orghosh is lower down at an altitude of about 8.000 feet; it is neither village nor even hamlet, just a few little houses and restaurants, and a place to visit where one can relax, breathe fresh air, find welcome repose, and admire the splendors of Nature.
The place is some eighty miles from Beirut, forty from Zahleh and ten from Ainata. It is accessible not only from the Cedars and Saydat en-Najat but also from Baalbek through Al-Qaa and Ainata or from Wadi Faara.
