Be ready to discover one of the best trails.

You get the chance to walk between the Cedars and in the valley along the river bank on a road dated back to the pre-historic era, where the scenery is really beyond description.

The valley offers a varied landscape and it’s considered the second Saints Valley after Qadicha Valley.

You will visit the old “Deir Mar Mikhael” at Ain Raha village where Saint Charbel and the Patriarchs used to have some rest during their travels. 

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

Our hiking level 5, it’s a downhill trail of just 11 KM. From Dahr El Mill to El Fowar you will continue along a trail full of Cedars trees and springs leading to Ain El Raha, then to the river. You will also be able to see rare views particular to this altitude terrain like “Qornet El Ribaz”. The stunning mountainous landscape, with cedars and pine forests seemingly defying gravity and growing on extremely vertical slopes, is impressive.

The track will take you to the old Monastery “Deir Mikhael” where the lunch will be there under old oak trees, then will start and head towards the river bank crossing by “Jabal El Mahabes” Caves Churches “Mgharet el Aatraniye, Mar Semaan, Le Mttolle, Sanaklit, El 3assie, etc.,” old houses, Waterfalls and Hadrian’s inscription (117-1138 AD) until you reach the spring, and will come back down to the river bank near the rocky tile for relaxing under the shade of the trees and enjoy the sound of water. You may benefit from a swim in the clean transparent water as well.
