A start in Arz Bcharre for a tour contemplating a real Lebanese treasure.
This event has finished
Arz Bcharre is one of the most beautiful places in Lebanon. It was nominated, along with the cave of Jeita, to become one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This Sunday, we will start our hike in Arz Bcharre. We will make a tour in the reserve, contemplating a real Lebanese treasure.
Then the group will be divided into level 6+ and level 3.
LEVEL 6+ (23 km) will walk to Arz Tannourine. The path is not too steep. It will end at the entrance of Arz Tannourine. You must be well prepared for long distances. Lunch will be somewhere along the way. It is an exceptional hike, worth all the effort needed. There will be stops for rest, so don’t worry.
LEVEL 3 will take the path leading to Bekaa Kafra, the home town of Mar Charbel. Unesco classified it as a typical traditional Lebanese village. It is a must to see. You will visit Mar Charbel’s house, the cave where he used to pray, and many landmarks of the village. Lunch will be somewhere along the way from Arz Bcharre to Bekaa Kafra.
