Hiking Trip - Kfarhouna Hike - Jezzine District

  • At the South of Jezzine area lies the town of Kfarhouna.

    Kfarhouna is one of the southern towns in the Jezzine area, known for its splendid natural scenery. On this day, we will start the hike together in Kfarhouna on the grounds of St Georges monastery.

    We will be divided into two levels:

    LEVEL 3 will start at the monastery and hike up to half the mountain to view one of the oldest oak trees in Lebanon. Along the way, we will see numerous abandoned dilapidated old stone houses and come across a water well where we will be able to refresh ourselves. We will continue the hike to the monastery. We will then have a Lebanese lunch with the other group. The hike will be full of trees and green areas preserving its natural atmosphere.

    LEVEL 6 will start at the monastery with level 3 and hike to the peak of the mountain “Towmet Jezzine” to admire the scenic view and catch a breath of fresh air. We will then go to the monastery and join the group for lunch. The uphill walk is not very hard, but needs good physical condition for this level.

    After the hike, we will eat a delicious Lebanese homemade lunch all together.
