8:00am – 6:00pm

Dear hikers, mark your calendars for this Sunday, July 14th, because we have an incredible adventure planned for you! Join us as we venture into the breathtaking Barouk Forest in the Chouf Cedar Biosphere Reserve. This magical forest is truly an icon of Lebanon and the Middle East, with its towering Cedar trees and stunning walking paths.
At an altitude of over 1,600 meters, the Barouk Forest offers a cool retreat in summer and a winter wonderland in colder months. Our three-hour hike on the “Acacia Trail” will lead us past a beautiful lake where migratory birds can be observed. From there, we’ll continue on the “Panoramic Trail” to reach Al-Mir Resort before looping back through the cedar forest to admire one of Lebanon’s most spectacular trees – the “El Arzeh El-Khotiara”.
But that’s not all – after our enchanting journey through nature’s beauty, we’ll head to Baakleen for a delicious home-cooked meal featuring delectable Lebanese grills and mezes. It will be a day filled with awe-inspiring sights and mouth-watering flavors!
So come along with us this Sunday as we explore the wonders of Barouk Forest and indulge in some unforgettable Lebanese cuisine. We simply cannot wait to share this unique experience with you!
