Boukaat Loubnan Trail: North-Beqaa Trail - Barka Ouyoune Orgosh
The trail starts from the village of Barka and starts to slope up amid an array of oak trees, where hikers climb to reach the yard and chapel of Saydet el Ataya. Standing there, enjoy the splendid view of the Beqaa plain and the Anti-Lebanon Mountain Range. From Saydet el Ataya, the trail passes a farm and continues towards Daher el Qadib and Ouyoune Orgosh under the form of a dirt road that crosses the valley that separates Rabiaa from Nabha. From that valley, the trail starts to slope up while being surrounded by beautiful junier trees, and reaches the high plateau above the area of Ouyoune Orgosh known as "Dahr el Ouyoune". From the Dahr el Ouyoune plateau, follow the dirt road towards Nabee el Shimaly water spring (drinkable water). With that, you have reached the area of Ouyoune Orgosh, where you can camp or spend the night in a chalet.
