Falougha Snowshoeing with Lebanese Outdoor Adventures - LOA
Dear Lebanese Outdoor Adventurers (LOA)
Join us this Sunday for a unique snowshoeing trail in Falougha.
HIKE DESCRIPTION: Falougha is a peaceful village in Mount Lebanon, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The first Lebanese flag was raised on its mountain and the town is famous for its freshwater springs and green hillsides, covered by a variety of trees.
The hike will start at Falougha pine forest, at an altitude of 1500 meters above sea level. We will walk up to Kfar Selwan lakes at 1500 meters, then take a dirt road up to the highest point of the trail where we will enjoy a stunning view of the valley and Falougha lakes. This expedition will include multiple short breaks to enjoy nature and the scenery. After the hike, for those who like, we will have a small gathering altogether at Soha Village “a la carte”.
