Trip 429: Hiking from Tannourine Reserve to Hardin - Darb El-Mahabess


Join the Footprints Nature Club this Sunday 13 May 2018 to walk on a very beautiful trail with very beautiful views and landmarks: 

Hiking from Tannourine Cedars Reserve

to Hardin - Darb El-Mahabess

Our walk will be inside the unique and extraordinary Cedars Reserve of Tannourine that has one of the largest and densest Cedars Forests in Lebanon. Check out all the info of the reserve on the website www.arztannourine.org

As we would like as many members as possible to enjoy this special trip, we will divide the hike into two levels:

  • Medium Level (6 to 7/10 – 12 to 13 KMs – 4 to 5 hrs): This group will start in the Tannourine Reserve, with the Easy Level for around 5 KMs. The trail will continue afterwards on a footpath of around 8 KMs towards the village of Tannourine Ta7ta. We will head afterwards by bus to Hardin to enjoy the magnificent views and see the monasteries in the region...
  • Hard Level (8 to 9/10 – 16 KMs – 5 to 6 Hours): This group will be separate from the other groups. We will start at the entrance of the Reserve, and take a footpath of around 8 KMs to Tannourine Ta7ta, before starting a very difficult 8 KMs path uphill to reach Hardin on a trail called Darb EL-Mahabess.
