Trip 452: Anniversary Hiking in Ouyoun Samak - Wadi Jhannam


The first trip for the Footprints Nature Club was done in 18 October 2009, and it was in one of the most beautiful regions: Wadi Jhannam...

After 9 years, and after 450 trips since 18 October 2009, we would like to thank all those who have participated in our trips, and who have participated in making the Footprints Nature Club one of the best outdoors clubs in Lebanon...

Long live Footprints Nature Club...

And to celebrate this 9th anniversary of our Footprints Nature Club, we will gladly re-organize this Sunday 21 October 2018 the amazing hiking trip in one of the gorgeous places of Lebanon:

Hiking in Ouyoun Al-Samak - Jhannam Valley

Ouyoun Al-Samak and Wadi Jhannam are two of the most beautiful places to walk in Lebanon. That is why we won't say more about it, we will simply leave it for the photos to describe the place.

We will be hiking from the famous Lake of Ouyoun Samak all the way through the Valley of Jahannam. As we would like members of all potentials and levels to enjoy and see the beauty of this place, the Footprints Nature Club is the only club to give you the opportunity to enjoy this place with three different levels walking together:

  • Easy Level (4 to 5/10 – 7 KMs – 3 to 4 hours): The trail will start at an altitude of 300 meters and elevate easily to an altitude of 500 meters.
  • Easy to Medium Level (6/10 – 12 KMs – 4 hours): The trail will start at an altitude of 250 meters and elevate easily to an altitude of 500 meters.
  • Hard Level (8/10 - 15 KMs - 5 to 6 hours): We will do the previous trails and then go to a very steep uphill taking us from an altitude of 500 meters to 950 meters.
