Zabadani, a pleasant spot located in the fertile Barada River Valley and 30 mi/45 km north of Damascus, is a favorite day trip for those looking to escape the capital's heat for a picnic by the river. The town overlooks orchards and fruit trees and is connected to Damascus in summer by a narrow-gauge train that winds its way along the valley.
