Trip 482: New Trail in Qammou3a Region


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite you this Sunday 23 June 2019 to walk on a new trail that will take us to the most beautiful place in Lebanon:

Hiking new trail in Qamou3a to Ghabet El-3othor

Well it is the famous forest of Qamoo3a in Akkar El-Ateeka region. The forest extends from Wadi Jhannam to Qobayyat and Fnaydek, thus having more than 10 million trees of different species.

It is simply one of the most beautiful places in Lebanon.

Throughout the trail we will have un-describable natural views. Just have a look at the photos of the region. We will pass through Al3othor forest غابة العُذر on our way. This forest is a very unique forest in terms of its beauty and type of trees. Note that enjoying the views in the forest in Fall season is totally different than seeing it in Spring.

The level of the hike will be Easy to Medium Level (Around 12 KMs) with some difficulties. We will start from The Highlands of Qamou3a at around 1900 meters, between the very old Lezzab Trees. We will then head down between the Cedars and Oak trees to Wadi El-Blat. The trail continues to Ain Shelesh, Ain El-Hajal, Mokel EL-Teffah, and passing thru Jawz El-Dawra between the natural rocks passages towards Nabi Khaled region to see the two biggest trees in the region. From there, our trail will end in the most beautiful forest in Lebanon: Ghabet El-3other...

Note that we will stop on the way back for 30 minutes in Tripoli as a midway break since the road is too long...
