Asi (Orontes) River

Asi (Orontes) River

Sourced from El-Bika, close to Lebanon Baalbek, Asi River is located in the Mediterranean region. Asi River passes through Lebanon mountains and creates a large lake near to Homs, and enters Turkey after passing the Hama Plain, and arrives Amik Plain.

Here, Asi River slows down, and is used by the local people to irrigate their fertile soils.

While most part of the 386km long Asi River is located on Syria, 88 km part of it is on the lands of Turkey.
