Site summary
The site is a mountain which extends westwards from the main Mount Lebanon chain along the edge of the Nahr Ibrahim, just to the west of Jabal Aalmat on the opposite side of the river. It is an important bottleneck for soaring birds, migrating passerines, and breeding birds such as Blue tit. Jabal Moussa represents a mosaic of Mediterranean habitats with mixtures of oak, pine, and wild fruit trees.
