The road of the Turks is in Brumana where we can hike easily whether it was raining or not. Of course if there was lots of rain we can make half of it, while if it was Sunny we can make it full.
The hiking distance is approximately 5 - 6 km.
The average above sea is around 700m
where 100m we go up and down maximum.
We start hiking from the municipality play ground while our road goes directly towards the "Druze Cimentary".
Then we pass through Al-Halabi and what was known as the Black Forest.
While we are at the black forest we will pass throuh Atoun Haroun and Haroun, then we pass through the Road of Turks (طريق الأتراك) .
At last we pass through Chagour Beit Meri, Haroun Castle before we turn around and arrive back to the municipality play ground where we left in the first place.
(if there was little rain we would have to change part of the places and pass through different ones)
We Plugin, You Hike
Hiking and computers seem like two entirely different worlds, but the internet connects outdoor fanatics every day. So every hike you join us with, we will send you full information and pictures about the whole day we spent with you. We expect you to sign-up on our website to be able to provide you with all the data about the previous hikes you joined us with.
WaH usually prefers being friends with guides around the area we will be hiking to be introduced by him to the people we pass by. Despite the fact that we have a few personal trails for us we always like that some guide from that area to join us. Having a guide with us will help us know the area more and more. Guides usually know lots of information about the weather in that area, trees, water and information about the history as well.
Preventing Hiking injury
Warm weather and outdoor exploring are here. Hiking is a great exercise and great fun sports, especially if you keep yourself safe and injury free. Before heading, make sure that you are physically capable of going on a hike. If you suffer from arthritis or other joint conditions, check with your doctor first. In the end, we have a fully conditioned First-Aid kit. We want you to tell us everything happened in case you had any problem while hiking or even before hiking.
Tips for Photographers
Even the most experienced hikers can get blisters on their feet. Unfamiliar terrain and inclines add more stress to footgear. Make sure your camera is protected very well, or put it in the bag when not needed and in the end listen to us since we have enough experience in hiking and taking shots with the Camera.
