Hiking Trip - Jahlieh - Chouf District

  • Jahlieh

    Jahlieh is one of the stunning currently trending hiking locations, known for its lush vegetation and beautiful resting spots by the river. The local municipality did a commendable gesture by linking all of the beautiful trails, compounds, and resting spots by creating bridges and passageways.

    It went along with this project and linked it to what is known as Darb El Heresh, a beautiful trail inside a prairie. You will see gorgeous landscapes by the waterside, as well as breathtaking waterfalls. You will also have the opportunity to meet the head of the Municipality of Jahlieh, who will give you an interesting brief about Jahlieh, its landscapes and beauty.

    Furthermore, you will discover the Jahlieh prairie (Hersh El Jahlieh), and hopefully, we will organize several events in this incomparably beautiful region and visit surrounding villages.

    In this event however, we will focus on discovering the Jahlieh village. We will walk on three trails: an EASY, a MODERATE, and a HARD level. We will begin our journey by meeting with the Head of Municipality, and from there, each group will start walking on the trail they chose.

    The easy level will have some time to rest at a charming location, and then go back to the starting point. They will walk for almost 4.5 km.

    The moderate level will take the trail within the prairie, then go back to the starting point, walking a total of 8 km. The hard level will walk for about 11 km, with uphill and downhill sections.

    At the end of the hike, we will have the opportunity to eat local specialties from Chouf, prepared by local women.

    We will all have lunch together before taking the bus and heading back to Beirut.
