This Section is adopted by BLC Bank. 

Trail Description
This section of the LMT begins in the historic village of Ehden, one of several entry points into the Qadisha Valley(وادي قاديشا ) world heritage site. The trail passes through the two major parts of this world heritage site: the Qozhaiya valley (وادي قزحيا ) where the monastery of Mar Antonios (دير مار أنطونيوس ) is located, and the Qannoubine valley, home to many historic monasteries and hermitages.  Most of the walking will be on footpaths, some of them quite steep. This portion of the trail is accessible all year long, and is a frequent destination for tourists and pilgrims. Hikers can visit the monasteries, often carved into the rock face, and the nearby oak forests.
