Laqlouq “The Howling Wolf” with Lebanese Outdoor Adventures
Dear Lebanese Outdoor Adventurers (LOA)
Join us on Sunday 14th of October 2018 for a new trail in Laqlouq “The Howling Wolf”
HIKE DESCRIPTION: Located in Jbeil district, Laqlouq is unique because of its raw and beautiful nature and its rich vegetation. It is also a major spot for ski lovers. Gleaming! This is the meaning of the name Laqlouq, the gleam of the year-round snows!
The hike will start at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level. We will take a dirt road up to the highest point of the trail where we will enjoy the stunning scenery of the landscapes that this area offers while feeling an amazing breeze. This track will lead us to a cross on top of the cliff from which we will experience a breathtaking view overlooking Akoura village and lakes. Then we will walk along the cliff heading back to “Saydet al Arn” where we will end our hike. This expedition will include multiple short breaks to enjoy nature and the scenery.
