DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

====================== 

Our Snowshoeing event this time will be in Emperor Hadrian Augustus Forest of “Niha – Kfour”. The magnificent green forest.

The town Kfour el-Arbe was originally named “Kfour Al-Arabi,” in reference to being the residence of many old generations.

 

Roman monetary pieces engraved with the head of Emperor Constantine were found in the town, in addition to a historical Church of Saydet Al-Qalaa Al-Ajaibiyyeh, built in an elevated place between the suburbs of Hardine and Al-Kfour. The church structure is an old temple.

 

Arz Niha is situated in the upper part of Qadisha Valley. It’s rich in biodiversity and constitutes a shelter for various kinds of flowers and wild animals and a haven for all bird species.

The amazing scenery that your eyes catch upon reaching these amazing landscapes is indescribable.

 

As usual, will be two groups:

Our walk there will be in the vast white hills till we reach the Magnificent Cedars Forest. Those who wish to have a moderate walk will pass around 6KM (2hours) from Dahr el Mil – Kerset El Batrak and continue with a panoramic view to the Cedars Forest there is time for rest and photo shooting. The others will take a longer path for about 9KM (3 hours) till they meet the first group in the Cedars Forest for lunch. There you will be able to contemplate that beautiful white landscape of the area.
Don’t let any adventure go by untried. Live your life to the fullest!!!!
