Hiking Trip - Nahr Ibrahim Janneh - Jbeil District

  • Nahr Ibrahim can be literary translated to the "River of Abraham." The river was known as the Adonis River during Antiquity. Today, it is one of the tourist attractions in Lebanon, being the place where the ancient god Adonis died, and the river became red with his blood.

    The Nahr Ibrahim valley offers a varied landscape and is considered one of the most enchanting for hiking. The impression is almost surrealistic as one makes his way down the valley toward the river bank.

    The hike will start either from Ibri or Yahchouch, and continue all the way until Wadi Janneh. Wadi Janneh, as the name reveals, is a piece of heaven on earth.

    The hike will be divided into two levels:

    LEVEL 3: You will start from Ibri, an old village rich in ancient ruins. The trail is beautiful, offering wonderful views. You will have enough time to take pictures and rest. Then you will hike all the way to Janneh, where you will meet with the other level for lunch. Lunch will be at the river bank, as close to the river as possible!

    LEVEL 6: You will start from Mar Jeryes, in Yahchouch, It is a mountainous area overlooking Nahr Ibrahim. Views are spectacular from there. Then you will continue to Ibri, and from there to Janneh. Lunch will be at the river bank in Janneh. The other level will meet you there.
    The area has many historical Phoenician ruins. On our way back, we will visit the ruins of Mashna’a, along the road of Artaba.
