Hiking Trip - Haitoura Roum Hike - Jezzine District

  • We have an exciting trail planned for you, fully organized and coordinated by Vamos Todos. Our destination is Jezzine, specifically the village of Haitoura, where we will commence our hike towards the village of Roum.

    En route, we'll make stops at a charming boutique winery and explore various points of interest, including old houses, 2000-year-old olive trees, and ancient grape presses carved into the rocks.

    Our journey begins together with a tour of Haitoura village, leading us into a beautiful pine forest and onward to Kharkhrayya, a small abandoned village that extends into Maknounieh village. Next, we'll all head to Karam Winery for a brief visit.

    From there, we'll split into two groups:
    Level 3 will continue to St. Peter Monastery, then take a bus on a short tour of Maknounieh. We'll visit the village's landmarks, make a brief stop at its municipality, and then proceed by bus to a local cooperative to purchase some homemade local products. The bus will transport us to Roum, where we will meet with the high-level group.

    Level 6+ will continue their hike towards Roum, navigating a steep uphill terrain that leads to the village, where they will meet up with the other group. We'll then explore the Prophet Jacob's Mausoleum and take a tour of the old village.

    After this wonderful hike, we will make a brief stop for lunch before beginning our journey back home.
