Kornet El Sawda Night & Sunrise Hike With Vamos Todos

We will hike to the highest peak in Lebanon and the region at night guided by moonlight and watch the sun rising from an altitude of 3,089 m! The hike is a tough one but we have an easier option for those who would like to enjoy the ride. We will be divided into two levels: Level 8 around 21 km long mostly uphill. We will start from Dahr el Adeeb and go upwards on a bare trail. We will continue until we reach the peak. If you prefer an easier hike there is the possibility to take a lift in a pick-up to reduce a third of the path. Then you will meet with Level 8 and continue the journey. The pick-up will accompany us along the way in case of need. It will be a Level 5 hike. We will reach the summit at sunrise time. Bring your breakfast with you as we will gather all together on the peak and enjoy it with a 360 view of the whole northern region of Lebanon.

Anfeh Sunset Hike with Vamos Todos

Come and experience the pleasant moments of hiking at the coast, while watching the beautiful summer sunset. This hike is a unique one, blending the beauty of nature and historical ruins. We will start our hike from Horshieh, where a very cozy path among olive trees will lead us to a small church called Saidet el Khrayeb. We will then continue among the olive trees until we start seeing the sea. The track will then lead to Anfeh, an old village rich in ruins and caves. There, you will visit a very old Byzantine church among other historical monuments. The Citadel of Anfeh will be an important stopover in our program. The citadel is considered a Crusader remain, but it was an important place for many other civilizations. Many historical things like old graves, mosaic pieces, olive presses, and salt pans can be found in and around it. The citadel is characterized by its rock-cut trench (Al-Khandaq). The hike will end in a natural cave, well equipped, and furnished in a very special way. There, we will eat some manakish and drink hot tea prepared by a local woman from the neighborhood. Note: This hike will be one level, an easy one. It will mostly be on the tiny streets of Anfeh.

Falougha Sunset Hike With Vamos Todos

What’s better than a mountain hike in summer? Definitely a sunset hike in Falougha! This peaceful village of Mount Lebanon is the typical Lebanese summer resort. It is known for its green hills, numerous water ponds, and the two rivers that intersect it. This little marvel has preserved its 19th century appearance and is quite enchanting with its red rooftops, magnificent landscapes, pine and cedar forest, and the Lamartine rock, where the famous French poet Lamartine used to sit and get inspired. Also, Falougha is where many scenes of the well known Al Hayba series were filmed, and the first place to ever erect the Lebanese flag, in the Falougha Cedar forest. We will start our visit to Falougha by visiting the Lamartine rock, then roaming in the Cedar forest, before starting a 7 Km moderate to easy hike along the wonderful very known water ponds, all while enjoying the unique and breathtaking landscapes surrounded with sunset colors. We will end our walk in the Falougha village, where we will gather around campfire and Sage Manakichs, with roasted corns and potatoes. We will have have dinner in this beautiful mountain setting, before heading back to Beirut.

Blawza Annoubine Hike With Vamos Todos

One can never get enough of Annoubine, because it is such a beautiful region. This is why we always go visit it again. However, the trail that we will follow this time suits a big majority of people who would like to visit Annoubine. The trail comprises no uphill and its’ downhill is not very steep. Also, it is not a very long trail (only 9 KMs), with so many amazing views and landscapes). We will have a Level 4 hike for everyone. We will start our walk in the village of Blawza, and pass by St. Marina Monastery, whose chapel now holds the tombs of eighteen patriarchs from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The chapel of St. Marina stands in the memory of a girl named Marina who entered Annoubine monastery disguised as a monk. (The whole story will be told during the hike). After St. Marina’s Monastery, we will go see Deir Saidet Annoubine, which is one of the oldest Monasteries in Lebanon. The monastery was built in a rocky pit, most probably by Byzantine emperor Theodos the Great in 379 – 395. The walls of the church dedicated to the Virgin Mary are decorated with mural paintings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The monastery was rehabilitated in 1990 and is now used by the Antonine Sisters who welcome pilgrims to spend the night. Afterwards, we will see old houses along the way, before reaching a very beautiful village named Freidis. We will continue our walk to the village and have the possibility to buy local products (eggs, Labneh, cheese). Lunch will take place in a nice location near the ruins of a very old house and on our way back, we will have a stop for some rest, before heading back to Beirut.
