Special W/E - Mamlaket Lezzeb Overnight - Barka Rabia

  • Thousands of years old Juniper trees, mesmerizing landscapes and relaxing atmosphere, this in brief will be our overnight in Barka in Eastern Bekaa.

    Barka has become known for enclosing “Mamlaket el Lezzeb” or “The Kingdom of Juniper” reserve, a vast area full of thousands years old juniper trees which are as important as cedar trees

    The reserve lies on 1850m of altitude and offers charming views. From there you can see the top three highest peaks in Lebanon: Kornet al Sawda, Jabal el Cheikh and Sannine

    We will stay in a very neat and well equipped chalets, each comprising two beds, a private washroom and hot water.

    Each room has a breathtaking view that will allow you to enjoy beautiful moments. This amazing venture is suitable for any couple or group wishing to spend quality time.

    Our overnight program will be as follow:
    Friday:
    On our way to Barka, we will have two stops, one in Baalbeck and one in Saydet Beshwat.
    Once we reach Barka we will check in and settle down in our designated chalets. We will then make a small nigh walk in the surroundings while enjoying the calm atmosphere before returning back.
    We will then gather all for an organic homemade dinner and share the best moments together.

    Saturday:
    We will wake up very early for an amazing sunrise hike which will take your breath away. We will start our hike before sunrise inside the kingdom of juniper reaching a wonderful spot where we can witness the sun climbing behind the western Lebanese mountain chain.

    Once the sun is up our group will be divided into 2 levels:
    LEVEL 4 will have a moderate 8 KM trail, with some uphill and downhill.
    LEVEL 6 will walk for 14 KM, following a harder and steeper track.

    All levels will gather for a healthy homemade breakfast.

    After breakfast, we will go on another hike and enjoy the beautiful heritage of this reserve. Each hike will offer wonderful views seen from different angles.
    We will do this time the following 2 levels:
    LEVEL 2 will return to the chalets on a different trail while enjoying the shades of old juniper trees on a 4 KM flat trail
    LEVEL 4 will have a longer 8 KM trail, with some uphill and downhill.

    We assure you that you will spend unforgettable moments with Vamos Todos.
