DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

========================                                                                                     

 

Falougha is a destination for vacationers all year long, thanks to its beautiful scenery, dramatic views, and pedestrian village.

Walking on the white peaks (like Jabal El-Kneiseh) of our beautiful country and enjoying the fresh air, the great landscape is one of the best escapes you can do.

We will start our hike at Sohat Village, located in the Baabda district. The elevation of where we start our hike is 1650 meters above sea level. The trail has wonderful views of the whole region.

As usual, there will be two levels of difficulty.

Level 3: About (2.5 hours) An easy walk, with very light ascents. It is ideal for picture taking. Will start from Sohat factory in Falougha and continue to Sohat Village then to the Cedar Forest where the first Lebanese flag was erected. Then, to Lamartine Rock where the famous French poet, Lamartine, used to sit and get inspired for lunch.

Level 5: About (3.5 hours) It is a hard walk with ascents until will reach the bottom of Jabal El-Kneiseh. This level is strictly for advanced walkers; long delay is not an option.
Photos shall be taken on the move or when we stop for a break.

You will be able to see rare views particular to this altitude terrain. The scenery is great! giving the impression of being in the sky. After the top mountain the trail will take you down to the Cedar Forest and then to Lamartine Rock, it’s quiet and panoramic views where you will have lunch there.

 

Protect yourself and others around you by knowing the facts and taking appropriate precautions:

   Distancing from each other is a must.

   Cover your nose and mouth with your face masks. To keep it on, while we are on the bus. 

   Clean your hands often by using hand gel or other.
