FALL TREK 2015

For the 3rd consecutive year, the Lebanon Mountain Trail Association organized its Annual Fall Trek where one team started in Aaitanit, and another in Qozhaya. (October 14- 24)

Both teams hiked for 10 days and met on October 24 in Baskinta to celebrate the Baskinta Literary Trail.

 

SPRING THRU WALK 2015

For the 7th consecutive year, the Lebanon Mountain Trail Association organized its Annual April Thru-Walk where a team of Thru Walkers hiked the entire 470 km from Andqet in the North to Marjaayoun in the South. They were joined throughout the trek, by other hikers who participated for varying durations (weekends, weeks, etc.).

Every Thru Walk has a special theme. In 2013 we walked for Water Conservation, in 2014 we walked for Trail Protection. This year we walked for our Cultural and Archaeological Heritage. 

 

Many generations took the trails before us. They left behind cultural and archaeological remains and assets that we need to take pride in and safeguard for our benefit and for the benefit of the generations to come. Unfortunately many of these sites are degrading and slowly disappearing either by neglect or by lack of funds.

FALL TREK 2014

On October, 2014 the LMTA completed its 10-days Fall Trek from Kfaraqab to Jezzine. The purpose of this event was to discover the incredible biodiversity of the country’s mountain trails as well as to encourage responsible tourism by supporting community development and guesthouse renovation and restoration, through the razoo online crowd funding platform.

SPRING THRU WALK 2014

The LMTA completed its six annual, month-long thru-walk on 4 May 2014. The long-distance walk (470 km) started in Marjaayoun, in south Lebanon, and headed north to Andqet in north Lebanon, bringing together 220 hikers from more than a dozen countries including Armenia, England, France, Germany, Holland, Korea, Lebanon, Switzerland and the United States.

The group stayed in local guesthouses, monasteries, hotels and campsites along the Lebanon Mountain Trail, where they enjoyed delicious, local-made meals, organizers said. Each day they did five to seven of walking, covering 17 to 25 km. In total, they injected more than USD 31 000 into trailside local economies while engaging in environmentally- and socially-responsible tourism, according to the Association’s objectives.
