Over the Hill, by the Riverside.

This Sunday, March 11th, Moon Monkey is seizing those smooth sunrays, while hiking up to “Al Ibrah”’s hill, then strolling down to Chouwen riverside. Spring is starting to reflect on the water there!


About the village

Al Ibrah- Chouwen is a village in Kesrouane, Mount Lebanon. Its topography constitutes a natural borderline between two districts: Kesrouane and Jbeil.

It emerges from 450m to 850m above sea level, and its distance to Beirut is around 40 km. (80 min)


About the Hike

We’re going to hike Al-Atlab, and Chouwan’s lake trail. Those trails are under the supervision of the Association of the Protection of Jabal Moussa.

The hike is a loop.

We will start at APJM entrance, up to Al IIbrih through “Al-Atlab”, to get a view of the other side: Namroud peak, Ein Jreid, Al Souaneh, etc.. This trail obviously passes through a forest full of Atlab, and pine, and oak trees.

The hill will then drive us 400 m down, reaching Chouwan’s lake, where we can have our mid-hike break by the riverside, and then go up again towards the starting point.
