Hiking Trip - Yahchouch Waterfalls Hike - Yahchouch

  • Yahchouch Waterfalls

    This time, our journey leads us to Yahchouch, a Lebanese village nestled in the mountains of Mount Lebanon, where adventure, culture, and nature converge!

    Yahchouch traces its origins to the Syriac language, deriving from "Yeh Hoshusho," meaning "the suffering god," as it is associated with the wounded god Adonis in Nahr Ibrahim.

    Part of the UNESCO Network of Biosphere Reserves, Yahchouch boasts direct access to Jabal Moussa and features waterfalls, pine forests, and breathtaking views of the Nahr Ibrahim River.

    We extend our gratitude to the youth of Yahchouch for their remarkable efforts in preparing the region and restoring old hiking trails.

    Our hike will traverse challenging mountain trails, offering both moderate and hard levels. Spanning 6 km, Yahchouch is one of seven villages surrounding Jabal Moussa Nature Reserve, hosting the 14th-century Saint Georges Convent, offering panoramic village views.

    Starting with a descent to view waterfalls, our walk will showcase the area's natural beauty. The moderate level will visit two waterfalls, while the hard level will venture to a third. Along the way, we'll encounter the intersection of two rivers, explore rock-carved tunnels, and witness the electricity company dam.

    Post-hike, we'll enjoy a special homemade lunch prepared by a local resident in Ras Yahchouch before returning to Beirut.
