The Big Loop

The Big Loop

On December 1st , Moon Monkey is going 44 km away from Beirut, up towards Jabal Moussa Natural Museum, hiking it all around!

Seven hectares of cultural and natural heritage lies in Jabal Moussa Biosphere reserve.New trails are being marked each year by the Association of the Protection of Jabal Moussa. Those trails link somehow, creating one big loop (Jabal Moussa’s new baby, yet not so tiny), allowing us to discover Jabal Moussa All Around.

#IWalkedTheLoop aka #??????

Oh and just for the notice, it's getting colorful in there too!


After achieving The Big Loop, each hiker will be acknowledged from the Association for the Protection of Jabal Moussa, with a completion certificate, and his/her name will be added to the achievers list at their own website. Let’s get some energetic monkeys in there ;)
