It includes a scenic drive throughout Mount Lebanon region, and a great hike around the Shouf Biosphere Reserve with its beautiful Cedars Trees Forest. You will also enjoy a gastronomical picnic activity in nature afterwards .


Take the main Beirut - Damascus highway east to Aley (about 20 km). After Aley continue past the villages of Bhamdoun and Sowfar to Mdayrej until you see Hammana Exit then turn right on the Damascus highway. Once you see the Lebanese Army Checkpoint on the left side of the big intersection, turn left and follow the road towards Ain Dara and continue driving all the way.

Follow HHH Signs until you reach the sign Ain-Dara/Bmehrey on the left side. Take this exit and continue driving all the way.

The whole trip from beirut to the meeting point should be around Protected content hours. It takes app Protected content from Beirut to Aley, and app Protected content to reach the Shouf Biosphere Reserve from Aley.

Come equipped with your hiking gear , sunblock and hats. Though this fun event is for half a day, the hike itself is only 1 1/2 hours approximately . It is of a moderate level, so don't panic :). There will be a BBQ picnic afterwards, so also bring your picnic food, or , meat, chicken, hamburgers, sausages, vegies etc. to BBQ. BBQ fire, beer and water will be provided and included in the hike fee.
