Trip 532: Hiking from Dakkoun to Damour - New Trail


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite to an amazing hiking trip on Sunday 16 January 2022. The trail will be a very beautiful new trail in a new region:

Hiking from Dakkoun to Damour - New Trail

The trip will be of an Easy to Medium Level (6 to 7/10): with around 9 KMs taking around 4 hours. Other than the amazing nature views, we will pass by an abandoned small village on the trail.

The sceneries are un-describable...

The weather is gorgeous, even if it was raining...

Let us all escape from what we have towards nature...

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.

Important remarks to make sure that we all keep safe and responsible:

  • Special procedures will be taken regarding the health safety of all of us, especially regarding COVID19 precautions.
  • We will ask you all to keep wearing the mask in the bus.
  • Distancing is highly recommended in the whole trip. 
  • As usual, each one of you will be responsible for himself/herself in case of accident, or in case of infection (God forbid).

 

رحلتنا لهذا الأحد 16 كانون الثاني 2022، ستكون في واحدة من المناطق اللبنانية الرائعة للمشي في الطبيعة وتحديداً:
