Read About Your Experience :

Discover Qadisha Valley's spectacular scenery and the stories of hermit life and Lebanon's first Maronite (Christian) monasteries during a 3 to 4 hour hike (9 km). After a 30 min' guided visit to Mar Elisha, we will start our hike with a 1.5 hour light green trail down and into the valley, until - after a small and easy climb - we reach Deir Qannoubine, the oldest Maronite monastery of the valley. Next, we will pass by the chapel of Mar Marina, from where we will take a 1.5 hour breathtaking path deeper into the valley toward the 13th century Hawqa monastery, still inhabited by one of the last three hermits in the valley (we hope you'll meet him!). We will end our hike with a 30 minute' climb up to the village of Hawqa, with on your way some gorgeous and far reaching views. On our way, we will enjoy a picnic with a freshly prepared lunch bag full of home-made pleasures.
