Sun 02 - Nahr Jawz   hike VT

Nahr el Jawz (Walnut River) comes from the depths of the Lebanese mountains then turns southward and empties into the sea between Batroun and the Hamath block. The river itself comes from two springs bubbling up above Tannourine. 

The beauty of Nahr El Jawz is at its climax during spring. Grab this opportunity to witness nature in all its colors. The wild flowers are so colorful along the river bank, spreading red, purple, yellow and white sparkles all over the ground. The water at this time of year flows so vigorously that it fills the air with a loud splashing sound. You will be charmed by the trees along the river banks, above all by the walnut trees which grow in preference close to water and which have given the river their name.

Years ago, Nahr El Jawz valley was the only possible way through which armies could reach Batroun. Most probably, our ancestors built the fortress of Msaylha situated at the center of the valley, to protect Batroun from enemy attacks.

On February 24th, 1998, the Environment Minister listed Nahr el-Jawz as a National and Historic Heritage Site.

The hike will be divided into three levels: 
LEVEL 4 & LEVEL 6 will start from Ibrin. Then you will pass through a dense pine forest, heading to Rashkida. A descent to the river and a wonderful walk along its bank will include some adventurous passages along the border of the water canal. Afterwards, you will head to the bridge of Beksmayya. Level 4 will continue to Kaftoun then take the bus to Kfarhay. Level 6 will continue uphill to Kfarhay.

LEVEL 2 will be a fairly easy hike without any ascents. The trail is mostly flat. You will encounter some narrow passages along the water canal. You will start from the village of Beksmayya and head towards the river bank. It will be a beautiful walk along the bank until you reach the bridge of Beksmayya. There will be enough time for photo sessions and rest. The bus will then take you from Beksmayya to Kaftoun then Kfarhay.

The Kaftoun monastery superbly established within the red limestone hollow cliff is in obvious contradiction with the majority of monasteries and convents in the Levant which are usually perched on top of hills or mountains. The monastery, dedicated to the mother of God, is managed by a group of about fifteen Greek-orthodox nuns, of the order of Our-Lady of Kaftoun (IX century). The monastery houses a priceless and unique double-faced Byzantine icon (1.11 meters in height and 80 centimeters in width) of hieratic style and dating from XI century. It contains inscriptions in the three languages: Arabic, Greek and Syriac.

The hike will end in Deir Mar Youhanna Maroun in Kfarhay. It was built in the 7th century. The skull of Mar Maroun is guarded there. You will get the chance to see it. Also, in the monastery, there is a priceless museum of old books dated back to the 15th century. Besides these books, you will also see old clothing and ancient instruments.

The Shuane Lake is located on the river bank of the Ibrahim River, at the north side of Jabal Moussa Reserve.

Mon 17 - Annoubine Valley   hike VT

Qadisha, one of the deepest and most beautiful valleys in Lebanon, is indeed a world of its own. At the bottom of this wild steep-sided gorge runs the Qadisha River whose source is in the Qadisha Grotto at the foot of the Cedars.

The word Qadisha comes from a Semitic root meaning "holy" and Wadi Qadisha is the "Holy Valley." Filled with caves and rock shelters inhabited from the third millennium B.C. to the Roman period, the valley is scattered with cave chapels, hermitages and monasteries cut from rock.

The whole valley with its cave churches is inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
This time, we will visit Deir Saidet Annoubine, St. Marina, Deir Mar Licha, Saidet Hawka, and Mar Licha.

Deir Saidet Annoubine:
This is one of the oldest Monasteries in Lebanon.
The monastery was built in a rocky pit, most probably by Byzantine emperor Theodos the Great in 379 – 395. The walls of the church dedicated to the Virgin Mary are decorated with mural paintings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The monastery was rehabilitated in 1990 and is now used by the Antonine Sisters who welcome pilgrims to spend the night. 

St.Marina:
The chapel of St. Marina now holds the tombs of eighteen patriarchs from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The chapel of St. Marina stands in the memory of a girl named Marina who entered Annoubine monastery disguised as a monk. (The whole story will be told during the hike).

Deir Mar Licha:
Deir Mar Licha is the birthplace of the Maronite Orders of Monks. It has a church in the cliff, and four small chapels built inside a natural cave, together with monk cells.

Saidet Hawka:
There you can see a tiny chapel in a huddle of caves and grottos with the barest remnants of fresco paintings. A Colombian hermit now resides there. We will have the chance to visit him.

The hike will be divided into three levels: Level 2 level 4, and level 6.
We already visited Annoubine Valley several times and our hikes were always moderate to difficult. This time however, we decided to allow Level 2 to join us, to enjoy a nice walk and spend some unforgettable time in the Holy Valley of Saints.

Level 2 will start their walk at the Mar Lichaa Entrance and follow a 5 kilometers path, until they reach the Lady of Annoubine Monastery. There, they will be allowed to have some rest and visit the location before returning to the bus either on foot, or in a shuttle specially set for that purpose.

LEVEL 4 will start from Hawka, visit the hermit, St. Marina, and Deir Saidet Annoubine. You will have enough time to contemplate scenery and take pictures. Then you will meet with the other groups by the river for lunch. After lunch, you will continue to Mar Licha. There will be some ascents and descents since the topography of the valley is quite steep. Be prepared!

LEVEL 6 will start from Hawka as well with level 4, all the way through the valley to Mar Licha. From Mar Licha, the levels will be divided and level 6 will take a 4 Km uphill trail from the monastery to the town of Bcharre. There they will be able to enjoy some good views of the surrounding area, before taking the bus back to Beirut.

Sat 22 - Yammouni   hike VT

Yammouneh is the site of an ancient sacred lake and Roman temple. 
A great water cavern west of the temple fills the lake each year, although at other times it may appear almost dry. Luxurious Roman villas used to occupy the area between the cavern and the temple and numerous altars, statues and other elements have been discovered nearby.

All that remains of the temple today is a retaining wall of limestone blocks which goes down to the lake level. Beneath are supposed to be subterranean chambers. Presumably dedicated to Venus-Astrate, legend has it that when Typhon made war against the heavens, it was at Yammouneh that Venus changed herself into a fish.

Yammouneh is rich in water at this time of year. It is the best time to visit. There, you will see old ruins, lots of water sources, and GREAT scenery.

The hike will be divided into three levels.
All levels will start from the end of Yammouneh. You will see a beautifully built tree-house, listen to a brief introduction about Yammouneh, then go your separate paths.

Level 6 will take the tough path, with ascents and descents. They will have a good workout walking through the jurd. The path is partly along a pebbled ridge, which is quite slippery. Then they will head down to the water source that is very strong at this time of year; a wonderful waterfall indeed.

Level 4 will take it easier, walking along the cliff overlooking the entire plain of Yammouneh. They will have enough time to rest and take pictures. Then they will head to the waterfall that is at its peak of its beauty at this time of year.

Level 2 will walk along a dirt road, overlooking Yammouneh plain. The walk is easy, suitable for all. You will get the chance to see the waterfall at the end of the hike.

All levels will meet for lunch at a small restaurant facing the waterfall. Lunch will be prepared by the local organization of the village, specialized in the breeding of fish. We will all eat delicious fish and organic Lebanese mezza. It will be a great opportunity to get to know the villagers, taste their food and support them financially. You will taste a special beverage, sharab el ribas, (Ribas syrup). This is a specialty of Yammouneh. 
Local products such as Ribas syrup, and other homemade foodstuffs will be available for sale.

On our way back, we will visit the miraculous shrine of Saidet Bechwat. 
The sanctuary of Our Lady of Bechwat is always full, day and night. Pilgrims flock by the thousands, from all regions and all religions, seeking intercession of the Virgin.
