Our hike will start exactly at the place of Rashid Nakhle who wrote our Lebanese National Antheme in 1927. We will spend 10 to 15 mins to hear explanation from the guide about that place and take pictures before we start our hike.

The Lebanese National Anthem (Arabic: النشيد الوطني اللبناني an-nashid al-waṭaniyy al-lubnaniyy) was written by Rashid Nakhle and composed by Wadih Sabra. It was adopted on 12 July 1927, seven years after the proclamation of the state of Greater Lebanon during the French mandate.

Our hike will be approximately 12km in Barouk, we will pass through some old places where the guide will stop to tell us about it before we continue.

For all who care to listen and get information about everything we pass through, you should always be hiking close to the guide. Those who prefer a calm hike can stay behind the guide by 200m - 300m because the wind is cold and hikers shall always be moving without any stop.

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.
