Read About Your Experience :

Discover the spectacular scenery and beautiful nature of Qadisha Valley, home to the first Christian monasteries of Lebanon, during a 3 to 4 hour hike. We will start your trail in the village of Hawqa from where we descend down into the valley. Here, we will visit the 13th-century Hawqa monastery, still inhabited by one of the last three hermits in the valley. We will continue your hike with a 1.5 hour breathtaking path through the valley toward the chapel of Mar Marina and Deir Qannoubine, the oldest Maronite monastery, from where we continue all the way down and deeper into the valley to reach the small village of Fraidis. On your way, you will enjoy a picnic with a freshly prepared lunch bag full of home-made pleasures.
