    It was a full moon and a perfect night to hike and watch the sunrise; and usually the best place is up in the mountains. In this case, it was the highest mountain in Lebanon (3088 meters). The hike started around 2:30 AM...

    The Qornit Sawda hike is a MUST in one's life; you have to sit at the roof of Lebanon and let the view sink in. It is a difficult trail because of elevation (shortage of oxygen), high wind, and the occasional steep slop...

    A great long hike covering the 8 3,000’ers of Lebanon. There is not marked trail but the route is easy to follow. You will need to start early as the day is long and need to carry water as no sources up there!

    It was lovely hiking it with you!

    Technically easy hike to the highest peak of Lebanon. When we went there was still quite some snow so on the way down the recorded trail doesn’t follow the road. There were shepherds with quite aggressive dogs.
