The Footprints Nature Club would like to invite this Sunday 27 September 2020 for an amaizng hiking trip on a new trail in the Apple Picking Season that will be:

Apples Picking & Hiking from Laqlouq to Akoura

We will start at an altitude of around 2200 meters from Saydet El-Qaren Church and head towards the Apple Fields of Akoura. We will enjoy the apple picking in the fields and try to help in picking apples from a field. We will enjoy during the hike the amazing views of Kartaba and Nahr Ibrahim Valley.

The hike will be of an Easy to Medium level (6 to 7/10).

We will head to the apples fields and enjoy apples picking after the hike.

That is not all. As a small reward, each adult will be able to take around 2 kilos of the picked apples.

Meeting is starting 7:00 AM facing the National Museum in Beirut (Met7af).

This trip is a great outing for families also.
