DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
======================

Nahr Ibrahim or "River of Abraham” is also known as river Adonis (river of immortal love) relative to the myth of Adonis and Astarte in Phoenician mythology. 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 in Jbeil Caza, especially during this season.
HIKING LEVEL. 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous

Our march’s for level 4 (approx. 2,30Hr); you will start from Ebre village and take the path in the midle of "Jabal Moussa" passing through trees and bushes where the views are remarkable.

This magnificent green forest makes the valley one of the best in the world.
