Hiking Trip - Jabal Turbul Hike - Zgharta District

  • Jabal Turbul, a round-topped peak, standing 10 km of Al Mina. It is 681 m high overlooking beautiful sceneries of the Mediterranean, Palm’s island, Oyoun al Samak and a part of Syria.

    We will meet for lunch at Turbul Church. Please pack your food with you.
    On the way back, we will stop in Nabi Youchaa to visit an important religious sanctuary: Makam el Nabi Youchaa which is 40 m high.
