Embark on a magnificent hike that takes you along a loop starting from the Qammoua plateau and passing through Nabi Khaled, the English Road, Wadi el Blatt Valley, and the Land of the Wolves. Along the way, you'll be treated to unforgettable landscapes while breathing in the scent of the local flora and trees: junipers, Cilician firs, and Lebanese cedars.
Steps & Interest Points
Departure from the Qammoua Plateau
The hike starts in front of the peaks adorned with Cilician firs on the eastern side of the Qammoua Plateau, which showcase a changing beauty throughout the seasons. It is snowy in winter, abundant with water in spring, and lush green in summer.
From there, we take the Route des Anglais, "Tariq El Engliz." The English opened this road during World War II to cut down large trees, store the wood, and build the railway section between Palestine and Syria along the Lebanese coast. Unfortunately, this had catastrophic consequences for the surrounding forests.
After passing through the cedar trees, the trail descends towards the beautiful Wadi el-Blat valley, covered with old fir trees and junipers. Water cascades down the rocks there during winter and spring. The trail continues towards Aïn Al-Farrouj (the Chicken Spring) and then towards Masrah Al-Diab (the Land of Wolves), before finally ending at Nabi Khaled, where the two oldest iron oak trees in Lebanon stand next to a magnificent cedar tree.
After completing the hike to Nabi Khaled, we begin our return journey to the Qammoua Plateau. The trail takes approximately one hour to reach our starting point at Qammoua, where we can conclude our memorable hiking experience.
