Trip 448: Camping in Rwayset El-Ballout


Another splendid camping event with the Footprints Nature Club will take place on Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 Sep. 2018 in the very special and beautiful nature of Mount Lebanon, and specifically:

Camping in Rwayset El-Ballout Pine Forest

The Fall weather is promising to be perfect thus allowing us to enjoy the stay in a private resort called "Lake Village", all under the Pine Trees in the amazing La Martine Valley.

The location is prepared with electricity, water and toilets. So no need to bother about these issues like you do in the wild camping trips.

That is not all, on Saturday night, we will enjoy a walk in the area nearby, since the moon will be big enough to light our way.

In the morning, we will have our breakfast of Saj Jebneh & Zaatar with Soft Drink or Tea, pack our stuff, and enjoy Zip Line & Rappelling in the Resort. That is not all, when we finish Zip Line & Rappel, we will enjoy an amazing hiking in the gorgeous Valley.

Reservations shall be done as soon as possible as places are limited. Payments will have to be paid in full before Saturday.

Note that Alcoholic Drinks are strictly not allowed during our trips and in the Camp...
