DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
This time we are heading to discover a beautiful village located in Aley District, altitude 700m, 32 kms away from Beirut, KFARMATTA, famous by its naturally rock fissure called Fizr and its breathtaking scenery overlooking Beirut and the Mediterranean Sea.
The word “Kfar” means town in Latin and the word “Matta” is Matthew’s Monastery. The village dates back to 1300 B.C; we will visit the ruins of a vintage Silk factory, since 1860, where we will hike through a scenery of green and autumn-colored leaves!
From there, we’ll pass by the village till we take an agricultural trail full of olive, orange, and pine trees. We’ll cross on our way beautiful old mills and we’ll pass by a river related to Damour river.
