Hiking Trip - Bsetine El Ossi - Batroun District

  • One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Lebanon is what we are going to see this Sunday! It’s the waterfalls of ‘Bsetine el Ossi’. Don’t miss it.

    Kfarhilda is a long, narrow town running along the hillside of the rich agricultural valley of the same name and is known for its pleasant outdoor restaurants. Scattered around the village are the ruins of many monasteries and churches.

    On the road of Kfarhilda is a springtime waterfall on Nahr el Jawz. A pretty valley known as "Bsetine el Ossi", near the falls, is ideal for hiking.
    This hike will be a one level hike (level 4+). The hike will be mostly beside a stream.
    You will enjoy the sound of rushing water along the track. The beginning of the hike is all downhill. The end is an uphill trail.

    At the end of the hike, you will be able to buy homemade products, before going back to Beyrouth.
