Trip 451: Hiking between the Apple Trees from Hasroun to Arz to Bsharri


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite this Sunday 30 September 2018 for an LMT (Lebanon Mountain Trail) trip that will be:

Hiking from Hasroun Village to Arz (Cedars) Forest to Bsharri

We will start at an altitude of around 1800 meters in Hasroun village and head towards the famous Arz (Cedars) Forest, passing above the highest village in Lebanon BekaaKafra, and the villages of Bkarkasha and Bazoun.

All of our trip will be on dirt roads to end in the Cedars of God Forest for the first level, and in Bsharri for the second level.

On our way we will have splendid natural views, and we will enjoy the views of the Cedars trees in the forest. That is not all, on our way also, we will pass thru several apples fields since the area is very famous with its apples.

The hike will be divided into two levels:

  1. Easy to Medium level with some difficulty since the road is long (6 to 7/10): overall distance of around 11 KMs. It shall take around 4 hours. This level starts walking from Hasroun and ends in Cedars Forest.
  2. Medium to Hard level (7 to 8/10): overall distance of around 15 KMs. It shall take around 5 hours. This level starts walking from Hasroun to Cedars, and then down to Bsharri.

For those who want to enter to the Cedars Forest, an extra 5,000 LBP shall be paid as entrance fees.
