Cherry Picking Jwar El Hawz - Cherry Picking! - Baabda District

  • Our journey this time is as colorful and pleasant as a cherry tree! We will head to the beautiful village of Jwar El Hawz but this time for an amazingly exciting summer activity: cherry picking!

    We will reach this typical village and have a very easy small walk until we reach the cherry orchards. This is where the fun begins! Each one of us will have a bucket to pick cherries and enjoy this satisfying activity.

    We will take our time between the vibrant trees. Once done, you will get the chance to have around 1 kg of cherries as a payback to your work. For those who wish to have more, you will get a very special price.

    After that, we will head from Jwar El Hawz to Falougha where a well-deserved homemade lunch will be served at the Grand Serail.
