North Lebanon's Dinnieh district holds great natural beauty and is filled with wonders worth discovering. But despite its dramatic vistas and environmental splendor, citizens continue to suffer from the district's lack of development and services, and struggles to promote local tourism.The region retains the characteristics of a traditional Lebanese rural area despite the gradual urban expansion that has begun to affect some of its central villages, such as Kfar Shallan and Bakhoun. The main characteristic of this nearly forgotten district, which includes 40 villages and towns, is that the residents live a very rural life.Dinnieh is some 12 kilometers from Tripoli, the capital of the north. The enthusiasm of the area's citizens and the magnificent scenery of the region do not seem to fit with the realities of life in the district.Adding to the difficulties, Arbas said that there are no residents who have enough capital to support the municipality in its efforts to carry out vital projects for the village.He underscored the importance of government support, particularly in remote villages, in order to give residents a reason to remain during the winter. The damage from such events can outstrip local municipalities' abilities to rebuild.
