Achkout Soft Hike and Hosting Table

We are glad to invite you to our soft hike on Sunday November 1st from Raachine to Achkout village at a middle elevation of 1.100 meters altitude. Our hike will follows the way that our Lebanese hero "Youssef Beik Karam" used to escape the Ottomans’ army.

As usual we will meet at The Domaine du Karst - Achkout @ 10:00am (better to reach from Jouwar El Bouwachek) where the Bus will take us to the starting point in 20 minutes trip to the historical church of St George in Rachine and where we start our hike passing in an oak forest and wonderful Kesserwan Rocks with panoramic views and diversity of vegetation. The way is an easy downhill of almost two hours passing by old ruins and water wells and learning about local economy in the Mount Lebanon years ago. The whole trail is covered by different types of vegetation in addition to large trees, and open spaces. We will pass by beautiful views and places for photo shooting all over the trail so be prepared. By ending the hike we will arrive to Domaine Du Karst where we will have the usual special lunch with new special items. The menu is as usual composed from grilled meat and chicken and vegetables with special salad, homos, dairy products and other specialties. Soft and alcoholic drinks are offered with lunch.

The cost for this hike is 35,000 LL including lunch, drinks guide and transportation.

Bring with you an extra sweater as the weather is getting colder in the mountain and wear suitable hiking shoes and hats. Domaine du Karst guesthouse can currently host up to 11 guests to stay over Saturday and/or Sunday night and the cost per person per night is 500grams of coins from any currency.
