DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
The name might be scary as it translates in into the Black Peak, but it is pure Lebanese beauty.
Qornet el Sawda is the highest peak in the Near East and in Lebanon located at an altitude of 3,088 m above sea level. It deserves the effort we do to reach it because it offers a very unique scene in all directions; Syria, Cyprus and Lebanon can be easily viewed from there when weather conditions allow it and you will definitely need a light jacket even if it may be hot in Beirut.
HIKING LEVEL. 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous
The hike (level 6) is tough, mostly uphill for about 18km long and starts from “Dahr el Adeeb”. The path is exposed to sunlight and there are no trees to cover us so you surely need to use sun protection and wear hiking hates.
For all adventure lovers we advise you to take this challenge!
The ones who prefer an easier hike (level 3 & 4), you have another alternative that will help you reduce 1/2 of the path; a lift in a pick-up.
We will have lunch at the peak. Get warm clothing because it will be really cold up there!
In our return to Beirut, our stop can be in Batroun to drink fresh Lemonade.
WHAT TO TAKE:
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 thick jacket, woolen hate and gloves. DC members get a 20% discount on sports equipment in Sports 4 Ever branches.
==There will be a breakfast stop along the way==
