Hiking Trip - Haitoura Roum - Jezzine District

  • We will take you to a wonderful trail fully prepared and coordinated by Vamos Todos. We are heading to Jezzine, specifically to the Haitoura village where we will start our hike to reach the village of Roum.

    On our way, we will visit a boutique winery as well as many interesting sites such as old houses, 2000 years old olive trees and ancient grape presses craved in the rocks.

    We will all start together on a tour in Haitoura village heading to a beautiful pine forest reaching Kharkhrayya, a small abandoned old village that and an extension to Maknounieh village. We will then all head to Karam Winery for a quick visit.

    Then we will separate into two levels:

    Level 3 will continue to St Peter monastery, and then take the bus on a small tour in Maknounieh. We will visit the landmarks of the village and have a small stop at its municipality. After that, we will go by bus to a local cooperative to buy some homemade local products. The bus will then take us to Roum, where we will meet the high level.

    Level 6+ will continue hiking towards Roum, along a very steep uphill leading us to the village to meet with the other group.
    We will all then go visit the Prophet Jacob's Mausoleum and have a tour in the old village.

    Lunch will be prepared by villagers, and we will sit altogether to eat a healthy meal before heading back home.
