Night Hike - Saydet Bchouche Night Hike - Keserwan District

  • We are in May, the month of Virgin Mary. It is a good opportunity to visit her during her month. Join us for our new night hike starting from Saydet Bchouche Ghadir all the way to Harissa.

    Night hikes have a special atmosphere that we don’t see in day hikes. Nature around you looks different. Nothing seems the same. The calm around you is awesome.

    The level of this hike is moderate and the path is not too long.

    We will start our trail from an ancient church known as Saydet Bchouche, standing tall right beside the Patriarchal Palace.

    From there, we will take the Airborne Regiment Trail to reach Beit Sabbagh, an ancient house surrounded by an old square full of truly beautiful old Lebanese houses with traditional arcades. This point is a small piece of paradise from another time.

    The views will be spectacular every step of the way. We will continue our hike until we reach our Lady of Harissa.

    Knowing that we will be tired and hungry, the local villagers will prepare for us a tasty mankoushe dinner on the saj, with hot tea and a warm welcome. It will be a great way to end our evening.
    Don’t miss it!
