Falougha is a destination for vacationers all year long, thanks to its beautiful scenery, dramatic views and pedestrian village.
Walking on the white peaks (like Jabal El-Kneiseh) of our beautiful country and enjoying the fresh air, the great landscape is one of the best escapes you can do.

As usual, there will be two levels of difficulty.

Will start from Sohat factory in Falougha and continue to Sohat Village then to the Cedar forest where the first Lebanese flag was erected.
