Hiking Trip - Qnat - Beit Munzer Hike & Wine Tasting - Bcharreh District

  • Qnat- Beit Munzer

    This time, we will all walk in one “Moderate +” level, with the possibility, for those who get tired, to exit the hike in several locations along the way.

    Our beautiful hike will be in the Governorate of Becharre. We will pass by several towns that are a true delight to the eyes.

    We will start walking in Hadath El Jebbeh and walk downhill to Khraj Knet between cedar trees, in the extension of the Cedar forest of Tannourine that spreads to Hadath el Jebbeh and continues to Qnat. From there, we will continue to walk down on a very beautiful trail until we reach Beit Munzer. We will walk inside the town of Beit Munzer.

    We will then go to a special winery, in Beit Munzer, called Mont d’Almaz. The owners are wine lover’s family. After living abroad for quite a while, they found that their land had the best quality of soil, a perfect climate with dry summers and snowy winters, essential requirements to produce a natural wine reflecting the mountain’s terroir. Their wines are produced at an altitude varying from 1000 to 1260 m. We will have a nice visit including wine tasting and explanation of the process of wine.

    After our wine tasting, those who are tired from the hike, may take the bus, while other members will go up to a town known as Kneiwer on the other side of the hill, before ending our hike. Along the way, we will see cedar and pine trees, and pass by several beautiful towns on our way.

    At the end of our walk, we will have a stop in the town square of Hadath El Jebbeh, and those who wish can grab a bite, have a drink, and rest, before we all go back to Beirut.

    Since there is no lunch included in this hike, do not forget to fill your bags with energizing snacks and drinks for the day.
