DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

======================     

 

This time we are going for a beautiful hike in the stunning Ozer Forest at Kfardebian village.  

The name Kfardebian originates from the Semitic language and perhaps descended from the Syriac, which gives it the meaning of “The Village of Deers”. The history of the village goes way back to an era that is still obscure because of the absence of archeological and historical assets.

The ruins of Faqra, the traditional Lebanese houses, the old and new bridges, and the remaining mills in the Valley of the Cross are the best proofs of the importance of the village and its rich historical originality.

HIKING LEVELS: 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous.

Our hike will be divided into 2 levels:

We will hike around 10 Km as level 4, for just 3,30 hours, will start at Nabeh El-Laban, it will lead us to a wonderful old natural bridge of rocks carved by water millions of years ago and there you can take as many of photos as you desire then to the impressive remains of a Roman temple and a citadel built on ancient foundations still dominate the scene, giving a view over the astounding gorge. The second part of the trail at the Golden Ozer Forest is easy and open to a panoramic view. The protected forest contains chestnut, oak, Turkish oak, pine, cedar and other tree species.

Level 5 (13 Km) Once we reach the old bridge of rocks, those who wants will continue Uphill and head towards ‘’The Phoenician tower’’ overlooking the area, then downhill until we join the other group.

 

Diversified.? Yes! You will encounter a lot of things in this hike!

 

WHAT TO TAKE:

============                

 

Healthy snacks that will boost your energy include dried fruits, lunch, water, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Wear comfortable walking shoes (A 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.
