DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

======================  

 

Definitely, a sunset hike in Falougha is an option to spend summer evenings. The origin of the name Falougha is Syriac and means “divide” symbolizing the two winter rivers that divide the village.

The 19th-century French poet, novelist, and statesman Alphonse De Lamartine visited Lebanon and spent some time in Hammana. He described the town and its surrounding valley as “one of the most beautiful prospects ever presented to the human eye to scan in the works of God“.

The hike will take place between the amazing lakes. We will have many reasons to keep our cameras handy, there will be scenes to cherish forever.

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

Level 4 (7.5 KM – 3.0 Hours approx.) is an easy and pleasing trail.

Our trail will start from the pine forest of Falougha, passes between the very known water ponds, and descend to the top of a hill to see a panoramic view. We continue our hike passing by Sohat spring water bottling plant to visit the first Lebanese Flag That was raised in 1943. We will hike through a Cedar Forest leading to the most picturesque spot at Lamartine Rock where the famous French poet, Lamartine, used to sit, and get inspired. There we will enjoy the fresh air and watch the beautiful summer sunset. The stunning mountainous landscape, with extremely vertical slopes, is impressive. The scenery is just great.

After finishing the trail, we will gather near a bonfire at Falougha village and we will have the opportunity to take a boiling tea and test roasted potatoes cooked by local villagers.

This sunset hike is not to be missed. It will imprint unforgettable memories of a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
