Hiking Trip - Tannoura - Ain Horcha - Ain Aata - West Bekaa

  • We are heading to the beautiful West Bekaa, specifically to Tannoura. We will start all together along a cliff overlooking breathtaking views of the area until we reach one of the most beautiful, well preserved historical temples in Lebanon located in Ain Horcha village.

    Surprisingly, the temple, dating back to the second century, is still in good shape and is well maintained by the locals of the village. We will visit it thoroughly and have a full understanding of its most relevant values.

    We will then be divided into two levels:

    LEVEL 3 will take the bus to Ain Ata village, for lunch. We will have enough time to rest and take pictures.

    LEVEL 6 will continue on foot to Ain Ata to meet with the other group. We will have minimal time for rest and photo sessions.

    Lunch will be at the women’s association in Ain Ata where local women will prepare a traditional delicious lunch. You will have the chance to buy some homemade products and a variety of handwork items to encourage the local community to hang on to their village. As an ecotourism club, it is our duty to help sustain citizens living in such remote places to carry on.

    We will then visit a grape press on our way back. We will learn how the production is carried out, and we’ll have the chance to buy fresh products straight from the source!
