Hiking Trip - Jabal Turbul Hike - Zgharta District

  • Jabal Turbul, a rounded peak situated 10 km from Al Mina, stands at an elevation of 681 meters, providing breathtaking views of the Mediterranean, Palm's Island, Oyoun al Samak, and a portion of Syria.

    Jabal Turbul is a desolate terrain, making it ideal for hiking in cooler weather.

    Our hike will be at a single level:
    LEVEL 4 (8 km) will commence from the residence of Jean Obeid and follow a level path leading to the Turbul Church, offering panoramic views from Tripoli to Syria. We will continue on foot along a descending trail that passes through the church and enters the Turbul woods.

    We will gather for lunch at the Turbul Church. Please bring your own food.
    On the return journey, we will make a stop in Nabi Youchaa to visit an important religious sanctuary: the Makam el Nabi Youchaa, which stands 40 meters tall.

    North Lebanon
    600 meters above sea level
