One last hike not to be missed before Winter season!
This time we will be heading to Ras El Metn to explore the wonderful atmosphere of a Lebanese Pine forest.
All along the trail, while stepping on cracking leaves, we can hear the water sound of a river stream nearby, and observe Nature dressed with all Autumn colors. On the other side of the valley, we will pass by many touristic small monuments, watermills and ruins of houses lying between a lush carpet of pine trees to finally reach Bachir Makram archaelogical bridge.

It is an easy hike on a wide path, but with a negative elevation gain of -578m, (good for the quadriceps). The hike will lead us to Chmissé, an old village on the river sides, then passing by a flat agriculture ground along the river, it will end by Deir Khouna.
If you wish to share this hike with your children, they are most welcome.
