Hike it. Protect it.

 

Book your place now!

You can walk for 30 days or join for sectional hikes (any number of days).

 


Hike it. Protect it.

In 2014, we walked for Trail Protection. In 2018 we decided to walk again for the Trail! Why? Well, throughout the last 10 years, the LMT has become a flagship for responsible tourism in Lebanon and a corridor for conservation and development. It is our National Trail and it deserves all our attention. It deserves to be officially protected, TODAY! 


Special events will be organized during the Thru-Walk to raise more awareness about the LMT as a national conservation corridor, and will be communicated to you later.
