Below is our program for this special event:

Yoga immersion, Live music and Stargazing with USJ astronomy club

Day 1: ‘’ L’étoile des cèdres’’ Arz Tannourine.
We will leave the meeting point at 15.00Pm. After reaching the location, we will pitch our tents, put the luggage, have some rest. Those who want can watch the sunset in this particular area that offers amazing views.
Then, we will Join for a yoga immersion adventure retreat that will connect your mind, body, and soul in the spiritual surrounding of astounding beauty and natural diversity of Cedars of Tannourine. To compliment this dynamic and regenerative movement, we will also spend time over the sunset for reflection, intention setting, and meditation. Our spiritual journey will explore beyond our bodies into our relationship with the divine.
This very special day of yoga immersion, in the sacred and mystical lands of God, will renew, detoxify, inspire, and restore your vital energy.
Later, we will enjoy the cozy atmosphere around the bonfire with live music performed by talented people who will amazed us by acoustic jams and vocal, sing along with them and enjoy the night under millions of stars with friends, families and our beloved ones. For all musician’s lovers they can join us with their musical instrument.
We will spend the night there, enjoy a clear sky full of stars and end the night by a cozy gathering around the campfire to have dinner of roasted potatoes, corn… and boiled tea. Of course there will be a snack near us where we can by homemade mankoushe.
Together we will leave our home planet and launch into an adventure taking us from our neighboring planets to far reaches of the Universe.
Those who chooses the Stargazing or Yoga event only, will return by car to Beirut

Day 2: Qornet El-Sawda -
Next day, we will enjoy a traditional homemade breakfast, make a small tour in the area of Arz Tannourine, then wait the other group to come from Beirut and join them at Hadath El-Jebbe village by our car for the hike.
Qornet el Sawda is the highest peak in the Near East and in Lebanon located at an altitude of 3,088 m above sea level. It deserves the effort we do to reach it because it offers a very unique scene in all directions; Syria, Cyprus and Lebanon can be easily viewed from there when weather conditions allow it and you will definitely need a light jacket even if it may be hot in Beirut.
HIKING LEVEL. 1 to 3 for easy, 4 to 6 for intermediate, 7 to 9 for strenuous
The hike (level 6) is tough, mostly uphill for about 18km long and starts from “Dahr el Adeeb”. The path is exposed to sunlight and there are no trees to cover us so you surely need to use sun protection and wear hiking hates.
For all adventure lovers we advise you to take this challenge!

The ones who prefer an easier hike (level 3 & 4), you have another alternative that will help you reduce 1/2 of the path; a lift in a pick-up.

We will have lunch at the peak. Get warm clothing because it will be really cold up there!

In our return to Beirut, our stop can be in Batroun to drink fresh Lemonade.
You can't buy happiness! But you can buy a Tent.
