Hiking Trail of our ancestor!!!

New Trail by Dale Corazon,
This time our hike will be in Tannourine in North Lebanon. You get the chance to walk the valley along the river bank of Nahr El Jawz, where you can take a lot of unforgettable pictures
Tannourine is a home to over 17 villages such as Tannourine el Fawqa, Wata Houb, el Wadi, Tannourine el Tahta, and many other wonderful villages.
We will visit the old Crusade church that age more than 1000 years and then start our hiking journey.


HIKING LEVEL. 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous
So our hiking level is 4, it’s downhill, easy and beautiful trail of just 7 KM. From the old church you will continue along a trail leading to old mills, then to the river. You will also be able to see rare views particular to this altitude terrain. The stunning mountainous landscape, with cedars and pine forests seemingly defying gravity and growing on extremely vertical slopes, is impressive; the scenery is great.
After crossing Wata Houb. The scenery changes from this stage. You will pass through a dense forest of different kinds of trees, giving the impression of being in a jungle. You will be charmed above all by the trees along the river banks and the walnut trees which grow in preference close to water and which have given the river its name.
The track will take you to “Tannourine Natural Spring Mineral Water” in El Wadi village; we will visit the company and benefit from an explication of all the process of water production.
Our lunch will be under oak trees near the river then we will start from the village of El Wadi and head towards the river bank until we reach the bridges and mills of Tannourine Tahta village. The bus will then take us to Douma Village; we will walk the old souk, discover the great landmarks and take a lot of pictures.
