Night & Sunrise Hike - Kornet Sawda Night & Sunrise Hike - Becharreh District

  • We will hike to the highest peak in Lebanon and the region at night guided by moonlight and watch the sun rising from an altitude of 3,089 m!

    The hike is a tough one but we have an easier option for those who would like to enjoy the ride. We will be divided into two levels:

    Level 8 around 21 km long mostly uphill. We will start from Dahr el Adeeb and go upwards on a bare trail. We will continue until we reach the peak.

    If you prefer an easier hike there is the possibility to take a lift in a pick-up to reduce a third of the path. Then you will meet with Level 8 and continue the journey. The pick-up will accompany us along the way in case of need. It will be a Level 5 hike.

    We will reach the summit at sunrise time. Bring your breakfast with you as we will gather all together on the peak and enjoy it with a 360 view of the whole northern region of Lebanon.
