I Have Just Come Back From Mashta Hlou


Mashta hlou is derived from a Assyrian word (oshti), and means land with many springs, or the other word (mashto) which means fresh spring. And both are true.

Mashta hlou is located in the syrian coast mountainous area, at altitude 700m.

There are important destinations, as Jabal Al-sayyide, Dawwayat cave, Arous spring, and Dalbe tree (the pic).

Now there are many touristic entertaining facilities, even swimming pools, cafes, restaurants, games, and many other things.
