DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
If archeology and history are of interest to you, the Syr El-Donniyeh region offers you a little-known site of great value.
The stunning lookout spot on (جبل الأربعين) Mount Al-Arbayin. The “40 martyrs” mountain was named following a 13th-century battle between the Crusaders and Salaheddin El-Ayoubi. It’s one of the Al-Makmel mountain series, which rises 2000 meters above sea level.
It’s one of the most beautiful hikes that will leave wonderful pictures in your memory. There is the HIGHEST SWING IN THE MIDDLE EAST!
HIKING LEVEL: 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous.
Our hike will be divided into 3 levels:
LEVEL 3 (Approx. 1hr.) It’s a tour and visit to the suspension bridge and the swing.
LEVEL 4 (Approx. 2.5 hr. around 7 Km) It’s a loop trail, it will be an easy walk: the first part is uphill, the next one is at a hilltop overlooking great views. The lunch will be there on the top then downhill to the bridge where we will get back to the bus. In this hike, we will have many reasons to keep our cameras handy. From the moment we start hiking until the moment we stop, there will be scenes that we want to cherish forever.
LEVEL 5 (Approx. 3.5 hr. around 12 Km) The stunning mountainous landscape, with the bridge and the swing seemingly defying gravity on extremely vertical slopes, is impressive. The path is like level 4 with an extra 1 hour ascending and descending an exciting trail that requires more physical effort. The trail about ends up at 1750m. We won’t have rest breaks as level 4.
This magnificent location makes that destination one of the best in Lebanon.
On our way back to Beirut, we may stop in Batroun to drink freshly squeezed Lemonade.
