Trip 515: Hiking from Ain Zebde to Saghbine overlooking the Qar3oun Lake


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite you this Sunday 22 March 2020 to a hike in West Bekaa Region on an amazing trail that will be:

Hiking from Ain Zebde to Saghbine overlooking the Qar3oun Lake

The trail will take us from the village of Ain Zebde to the village of Saghbine. All of the trail will be overlooking the Qar3oun Lake in West Bekaa. 

We will not stop on the way for breakfast, since we will enjoy our traditional Lebanese Manakeesh Jebne and Zaatar, in a local bakery in Ain Zebde

The trail will be divided into two sections:

1.       Easy to Medium Level (6 to 7/10): We will start from ain Zebde and end in Saghbine with around 7 KMs.

2.       Medium (7 to 8/10): We will start with the first group, and continue after they stop for an extra 3 to 4 KMs on the Maghaweer Trail (around 11.5 KMs).

Note that we usually don't cancel our trip if it is raining. We just wear our waterproof stuff to enjoy walking under the rain...
