The Qanat Bakish is known for the quality of its snow and the fact that it is one of the least crowded ski resorts in the area. This is why we choose Bakish for snowshoeing every year.

The old village of Qanat Bakish is one of the best preserved old Lebanese towns, keeping most of its original architecture and green spaces, a hidden treasure worth discovering.

Our hike will be around 2.5 hours
We will move slowly up till 8 km

All hikers will be given 2 snow shoes and 2 walking poles with good condition. They shall return them back both in same condition otherwise they will have to pay the price for fixing the snowshoes or buying new ones.

For any information needed please call Theo at 03.582084

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.

TRAILS

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.
