DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:

=========================   

 

Definitely, a sunset hike in Zaarour is an option to spend summer evenings. The origin of the name Zaarour is Syriac and means its Powerful Symbolism, Destiny, and Luck.

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 and mountains 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 near 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 (3.0 Hours approx.) is an easy and pleasing trail.

Our trail will start from Marj El Bakra, passes between the very known water ponds, and ascend to the top of a hill to see a panoramic view. We continue our hike passing by an old village and leading to the most picturesque spot. There we will enjoy the fresh air and watch the beautiful summer sunset and enjoy Lebanon in its twilight colors. The stunning mountainous landscape, with the highest Cross, is impressive. The scenery is just great.

After finishing the trail, we will gather near a bonfire at Zaarour village and we will have the opportunity to take 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.
