Hiking - Wadi Laymoun - Jezzine District

  • Azour Saidoun Wadi Laymoun

    This Sunday, we will uncover a trail discovery by Vamos Todos. Brace yourselves for adventure in the arms of Mother Nature, and head with us to the South, to a region that connects the Caza of Jezzine to that of Zahrani Of course. The places we are going to visit are unmeasured by their beauty and the time you will spend there is really worth it.

    We will start our walk in a region named Saidoun, and follow a trail that will lead us to the Shkadif monastery (Mar Takla). Then, we will traverse the Dahr el Deir town, before reaching the village of Wadi Laymoun, which is really beautiful and notable for the panoramic landscapes it offers of most of the South.

    The hike will be divided to two levels: Level 4 and Level 6. All levels will start to walk together.

    Level 4 will walk for about 7.5 km, on a trail that is not that easy, until reaching the village of Wadi Laymoun.

    Level 6 will start from Azour, will continue the hike on a quite difficult downhill trail, until reaching a dry riverbed. The track is not very clear at the location, and though it is a bit adventurous, it is definitely feasible. After passing this area, the group will reach an ancient mill that is really beautiful, with a river flowing nearby.
    The whole walk will be about 14 km.

    We will stop in a nice area to have lunch. After finishing lunch and spending the day in the great outdoors, we will finally head back to Beirut.
