It’s the cherry-picking season in Bekaakafra village. Join us and get the chance to share special moments and delight in exceptional activities in nature.
We will start our day by exploring the land and picking cherries; nothing is better than a sweet red cherry right off the tree. Of course, you will be provided materials for work (participants can bring with them gloves if they prefer).
Then we will make a visit to Bekaakafra village, Unesco classified it as a typical traditional Lebanese village. It is one of the highest villages in Lebanon; It is a must to see. We will visit Mar Charbel’s house, and many landmarks of the village.
Our lunch will be nearby at Hasroun Village, we will sit together, share and watch the beauty of our nature and you can also have your own picnic.
The next visit will also be to a historical hidden gem called St Simon archaeological monastery, Bkerkasha.
It was built at the beginning of the 12th century and is located in a rocky natural setting. The views from inside the cave are amazingly peaceful, overlooking the sacred valley of Kadisha.
Those who would be interested to buy cherries will benefit from a discount.
