Visitors often flock to the southern Khardali River to kayak and swim or hike along its banks, even though it runs through areas patrolled by UNIFILpeacekeepers enforcing U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the July 2006 War. The river is connected to the Qaraoun Lake in the Western Bekaa, and though the odd altercation between Hezbollah and the Israeli army is rare these days, security near the U.N.-demarcated Blue Line is still considered precarious. Water issues, caused by the milder-than-usual winter that hit Lebanon this year, have not affected the river, which can be heard rippling along, along with the sounds of UNIFIL armored vehicles rumbling past. By the river is a canoe/kayak club.Visitors to the park like to paddle in canoes and kayaks along the river.
