DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

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

 

This time we are heading to discover a beautiful village located in Aley District, altitude 700m, 32 km away from Beirut, KFARMATTA, famous for its natural rock fissure called Fizr and its breathtaking scenery overlooking Beirut and the Mediterranean Sea.

The word “Kfar” means town in Latin and the word “Matta” is Matthew’s Monastery. The village dates back to 1300 B.C; we will visit the ruins of a vintage Silk factory, since 1860, where we will hike through the scenery of green and autumn-colored leaves!

From there, we’ll pass by the village till we take an agricultural trail full of olive, orange, and pine trees. We’ll cross on our way to beautiful old mills and we’ll pass by a river-related to Damour river. Our trail will lead us to the famous Al Fizr naturally-formed rock fissure and we’ll continue up till we reach the end of the trail.

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

Kfarmatta is a wonderful place for hiking; our hike will be divided into 2 levels:

LEVEL 4 (approx.7 km) is downhill and straight beautiful trail. Will start from a piazza at 280 meters elevation. We will experience the fascinating Lebanese wild nature with its colorful trees and herbs, chirping birds, fresh breeze, and rushing water. The scenery is really beyond description. We will have enough time for meditation, photo shooting and fun. We will have lunch together beside the river, rest a bit, and then continue to Al Fizr.

Level 5 (approx.12 km) The extra part of that trail is Downhill at the beginning, will start from Kfarmatta village at 600 meters elevation and take a trail between the old olive trees.
