This time our hike will be in Tannourine, North Lebanon. We will get the chance to walk the valley along the riverbank of Nahr El Jawz on a road dated back to the Roman Empire, where we can take a lot of unforgettable pictures.
Tannourine is 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 aged 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
There will be divided into three groups:
Our hiking for level 4: it’s a downhill, easy and beautiful trail of just 7 KM. We will continue along a trail leading to old mills from the old church, then to the river. We 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. We will pass through a dense forest of different kinds of trees, giving the impression of being in a jungle. It will be charmed above all by the trees along the river banks and the walnut trees that grow in preference close to the water and have given the river its name.
The track will take us to “Tannourine Natural Spring Mineral Water” in El Wadi village; Maybe 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 riverbank at El Wadi village.

Then we will continue with level 5 (just 12 KM) from the village of El Wadi and head towards the river bank until we reach the bridges and mills of Tannourine Tahta village at Tahoun Bassa. Then by bus will join level 6.

With level 6 (15 Km) will continue at Darb El Naher to Kfarhelda village, crossing the amazing waterfall, old mills, discovering cave churches, and taking a lot of pictures.
