DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Khreibe village is known for its traditional Lebanese houses, its old oak tree and the Saint Georges Church. It is also known for its ancient ruins and monuments such as the oil presses, sarcophagi and the Joumblatt family Serail dating from the Ottoman period.
There are also six water sources: Ain el Chatawiyeh, Ain el Jadida, Ain el Qadima, Ain el Mechqer, Ain Aadas, and Ain Amer.
It’s one of the most beautiful Lebanese trails where will discover the great landmarks and take a lot of pictures.
We will have the opportunity to check out the old oak tree “Al Sit Sarah“, the ancient Roman Burials, and the old olive press. We will also visit Ein Mishkeer and hike through the forests towards Al-Shouf sanctuary where the amazing scenery that your eyes catch upon reaching these amazing landscapes is indescribable, hang out at Dar El Ein and its a public plaza. And last but not least, we will shop for organic homemade ‘Mouneh‘, homemade Soap and handcrafts at the ‘Sit El Hessin‘ workshop.
The lunch will be under one of these trees.
HIKING LEVEL. 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous
This hike in Chouf will be exceptional; first we will visit a guest house (Beit El-Dai3a) with a warm and friendly greeting from the owner, accompanied by presentation of the reserve, then we will hike in a wonderful village (Khreibeh) and later on we will go to Mashkir forest reserve.
Khreibeh is a wonderful place for hiking; our hike will be divided into 2 levels:
Level 4, (7 km) due to the topography of the ground and the walk at the village and through the forests, you are bound to ascend and descend minor slopes, so the hike will be easy.
Level 6, (11 km Aproxim. 4 hr.) will walk the same trail as level 4, and after lunch you will take a different and more difficult trail in the forest that is uphill and downhill to Baadarane. This part of the trail at the end requires good physical strength. Afterwards, you will join level 4 at the village location.
Diversified? Yes! You will encounter a lot of things in this hike!

Healthy snacks that will boost up your energy such as dried fruits, lunch, water, cap, sunglasses and sunscreen. Wear comfortable walking shoes (Professional brand is recommended) and don’t forget to get a light jacket. DC members get a 20% discount on sports equipment in Sports 4 Ever branches.
