This ridge of foothills south of Tripoli has some interesting Berber villages and a slightly cooler climate compared to the coastal plain. Gharyan is a good base for exploring the area. It also boasts a traditional craft school where pottery is made and carpets are woven. The Berber village of Yefren and nearby underground and cave dwellings are also worth seeing. Gharyan is 52 mi/86 km south of Tripoli.
