Amazing Orghosh in the Northern Lebanon

Lebanon is an amazing country because it is extremely small but it has many closeup places where it needs hours and days to go from one place to another in another country. In Lebanon from the sea to the highest 3088m place takes 60 to 90 minutes. This is the specialty to find in Lebanon where you can never find anywhere else.

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

In Lebanon, people have different hobbies. However, according to us, we only care about one thing; and it is hiking. Unfortunately, hiking has become discouraged lately and the number of hikers have decreased slowly. This is exactly the main reason why we made this idea official enough to re-change Lebanese to encourage hiking.

Instead of meeting new and old friends on the internet and in a restaurant, we are giving you a better way; what's more fun than to enjoy your day meeting new friends, plus doing sports and losing calories all in one. Hiking will be once again the best thing to be done everywhere.

Hiking is an outdoor activity which consists of walking in natural environments, mostly in mountainous or other scenic terrains in Lebanon. Usually we always hike on hiking trails. It is such a popular activity that there are numerous hiking organizations worldwide. Of course, we have our special trails created by us and our guides, while we sometimes make events in very well known places where many guides hike there. Usually, Lebanon is a small country with many paths; most of them are well known. The word hiking is understood in most countries. This is why "We are Hikers".
Hikers often seek beautiful natural environments in which to hike. These environments are often fragile, as hikers may accidentally destroy the environment that they enjoy. While the action of an individual may not strongly affect the environment, the mass effect of a large number of hikers can degrade the environment. This is why to take care of our country environment and green places, we have to walk easily and listen to whatever the guide tells us in case we had to take care of a small tree growing up or even take care of ourselves from falling down and injure ourself.
Because hiking is a recreational experience, hikers expect it to be pleasant. Sometimes hikers can interfere with each other's enjoyment, or that of other users of the land. This is why "Hiking etiquette" has developed to minimize such interference. For example:
  • When two groups of hikers meet on a steep trail, there may be contention for use of the trail. To avoid conflict, a custom has developed in some areas whereby the group moving uphill has the right-of-way.
  • Being forced to hike much faster or slower than one's natural pace can be annoying, and difficult to maintain consistently. More seriously, walking unnaturally fast dramatically increases fatigue and exhaustion, and may cause injury. If a group splits between fast and slow hikers, the slow hikers may be left behind or become lost. A common custom is to encourage the slowest hiker to hike in the lead and have everyone match that speed.
  • Hikers generally enjoy the peace of their natural surroundings. Loud sounds such as shouting or loud conversation, or the use of mobile phones, disrupt this enjoyment. However making noise is considered a necessary safety precaution in many areas home to large wild animals, especially predators such as bears.
  • To keep nature beautiful, it is important that no traces are left. Besides the obvious, such as bringing back all trash, leaving no traces also comprises taking care not to unnecessarily break plants or disturbing wildlife.
Noxious plants that cause rashes can be particularly bothersome to hikers. Such plants include poison oak, poison ivy, poison sumac, and stinging nettles. This is why you should always listen to the guide who has experience in this field.

Also, staying as a group will force animals such as dogs, pigs or anything else not to attack you to protect themselves or their kids. Always listen to our guide whether in the front or back, to understand what he means. If you are too tired to, continue let the guide know, don't force yourself to hike when you feel tired. Always inform us with anything that happens to you on our way because in the end, we are there to enjoy our day, have fun and return back home with an amazing story to talk about.
The equipment required for hiking depends on the length of the hike. But usually, our hikes are mostly between 3 up-till 7 hours. Hikers generally carry water, food, and have special shoes that makes the event easier.
  • - sun glasses
  • - extra clothes if we are resting close to a pond or river
  • - cap to protect your head from the sun
  • - Camera (in case you love to take natural pictures)
  • - A stick (some prefer a natural stick taken from a tree and others prefer to use none)
  • - Sunscreen

Hiking Injuries


Sunburn is always a danger in the High Sierra, even on a cloudy day. Always apply sunscreen before you begin your hike, and re-apply sunscreen periodically during the day. Pay special attention to re-application after sweating a lot or getting wet in streams or waterfalls.

Insect Bites

We are pretty lucky when it comes to bugs in the high desert, but depending on where your hike takes you, you can run into any manner of flying, stinging creature. Apply bug spray if hiking near water or in any area you know has biting insects. If you have a severe insect allergy, you should always carry appropriate emergency medicine (i.e. epi pen).

Skin Injuries

Another common injury on hiking trails is skinned knees or elbows that occur when we neglect to watch the ground or our surroundings. Tree roots and loose rocks can cause slips and falls and branches can scrape the face and neck. You can always pack a small first-aid kit, but being aware of your surroundings is #1.
