Lebanon Mountain trekking to raise environmental awareness and encourage rural tourism from Marjeyoun to Akkar

8-4-2014

The Lebanese Mountain trekking kicked off yesterday on a journey to raise environmental awareness.  The trail started from the municipality of Marje3yoon in the south, and ended in 3endakt in Akkar, North Lebanon, with the participation of some 25 young men and women, including 9 expatriates.
The headline of this year’s edition of the trekking event is “Walk to preserve mountain trails”, and will span over one full month. Participants will stop over in various towns and will be hosted in rural lodges so as to promote rural tourism and traditional Lebanese cuisine. Each participant will hold a special passport issued by the "Lebanon Mountain Trail" association, and signed by the mayor of visited towns. Some of the participants plan to walk the entire path, i.e. the distance of 470 km, while others will join at different junctions of the trail, thus rising their total number to 100 participants.
