Trip 518: Hiking from Batloun to Mokhtara


One of the best hiking trips in this lovely weather with the Footprints Nature Club this Sunday 29 March 2020 will be on a trail in Shouf Region that we make sure to do every Spring as its beauty is really undescribable, will be:

Hiking from Batloun to Mokhtara near Barouk River

(Shouf Biosphere Reserve)

The trail is in the zone of the Shouf Biosphere Reserve.

The trail is so beautiful that we make sure to open it for various levels, especially that we will walk near the Barouk River. We won't say more, enjoy the photos on our website to know what we are talking about...

We will start our walk from the village of Batloun, and head down to the valley thru a historic road before starting our walk in the valley near the river.

The walk is of an Easy to Medium Level (6 to 7/10). It will be around 10 KMs. It shall take around 5 hours.

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...
