33 North: Join the Journey - Mount Hermon Trek (2814 m) The sacred mountain

It was called Sirion by the phoenicians and Hermon in the ancient testament. This sacred mountain has been renamed Jabal Al-Shaykh in the modern era.

During the roman period, like Mount-Lebanon, Mount-Carmel and Mount-Cassius, this summit was considered a sacred place and a divine residence and the belief is confirmed by the presence of many temples. In fact, the traces of an ancient cult still remain at Qasr Antar, namely, a rock in the form of a cone, from 5 to 6 meters high and surrounded by an oval stone enclosure.

We will start our trek from Wadi Jeneem above the village of Chebaa and we will return from different route Ain Sabroune. Mules are going to carry our personal and camping equipment up to the mountain.
