We meet with our guide in downtown Kobayat at 8:00 am, then proceed together towards the village of Bazbina. From there, we set out on the path leading to the Source des Pins (Nabaa ech-Chouh el Aali).
The village of Bazbina, located in Wadi Ed-Deir (the Valley of the Convent) is the starting point of a trail to Nabaa ech-Chouh el Aali (The High Source of Pines). The convent in question is dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Nearby, there is a source, "Aïn er Raheb" (the source of the monk), from which you can follow the path in the shade of the trees to another source, Aïn et-Tiné (the Source of the Fig tree) .
From there, the path climbs quite sharply towards Mount Quellé. It meanders between strawberry trees, Calliprinos oaks and Infectoria oaks. Once the ascent is over, the path becomes flat.
We reach Aïn ej-Jawzet (the source of the walnut trees) and pass through the ghost village of Kroum es-Sammaqa, next to the village of Aïn Yaacoub. Our guide tells us the story of Kroum es-Sammaqa, full of mystery: the inhabitants of the village had to flee it 200 years ago, without anyone knowing why.
Past the village, the path ascends and leads us to Chaqdouf, then to Nabaa ech-Chouh el Wati (the Lower Source of the Pines). The path is then lined with apple trees. We reach our point of arrival: Nabaa ech-Chouh el Aali, the Source Haute des Pins.
During the day, our guide takes us to a local restaurant for a traditional Lebanese lunch.
