Trip 511: Hiking from Dakkoun to Ba3werta to Damour


The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite you this Sunday 01 March 2020 to walk on a new trail in a new region, that will be:

Hiking from Dakkoun to Ba3werta to Dakkoun

The main aim for this walk will be to examine part of the forests that were burnt in the recent Forests' Fire in 2019.

The trail will start from the Village of Dakkoun where we will walk in a splendid pine forest overlooking the Jisr El-Qadi Valley. The trail continues to the Village of Ba3werta where we will pass by some historical ruins on the way, before starting to descend thru the burnt forest to the Village of Damour, where the gorgeous Sea View will be with us all the way.

The hike will be of an Easy to Medium Level with a long trail (7/10, 14 KMs, with around 4 to 5 hours).

Note that we usually don't cancel our trips if it is raining. We take our raining gear and enjoy walking under the rain.

رحلتنا لهذا الأحد 01 آذار 2020 ستكون على درب جديد في منطقة جديدة، وتحديداً:

مشي في الطبيعة من دقون الى بعورتا الى الدامور

هدف الرحلة الأساسي هو معاينة بعض الغابات التي احرقتها النيران في سنة 2019.

الرحلة ستبدأ من بلدة دقون، لنمشي في غابات الصنوبر الرائعة فيها ولنستمتع بمناظر وادي جسر القاضي الرائع. نكمل الدرب باتجاه بلدة بعورتا، حيث سنمر ببعض الآثار القديمة في المنطقة، قبل ان نبدأ بالنزول داخل الغابات المحروقة باتجاه بلدة الدامور الشهيرة.

الرحلة ستكون بمستوى سهل إلى متوسط: الدرب طويل، بمسافة 14 كلم ووقت حوالي 4 الى 5 ساعات.

ملاحظة: في حال كان الطقس ماطراً، فإننا لا نلغي الرحلة بل نتجهز بما يلزم لنستمتع بالمشي تحت المطر.
