Trip 407: Hiking from Bkassine to Bisri


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite you this Sunday 17 December 2017, to enjoy this splendid cool Autumn weather in one of the most beautiful hiking places trips in Lebanon:

Hiking from Bkassine to Bisri

The hike will start in the amazing village of Bkassine and head down the Bkassine Pine forest towards the Sabah Village. We will continue our trail to reach the Village of Machmouche, before heading down to the valley of the Awali River to end in the village of Bisri.

The trip will be full of amazing natural views, and we will walk the first part between the pine trees of Bkassine, and will end between the Oranges fields of Bisri. This is the season of oranges picking, so we will experience seeing the farmers picking up oranges from the trees.

The level of the hike will be Easy to Medium (6 to 7/10 with around 10 KMs in 5 hours).

In this season, the weather is always unstable especially in mountains. Thus make sure to get heavy jackets and other warm stuff with you in all the hikes.
