33 North: Discover Tannourine and a trekking to Oyoun Orghosh - Wadi Johanam - Akkar


33 North invites you to walk the Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT), the first long-distance hiking trail in Lebanon! The LMT extends from Qbaiyat in the north of Lebanon to Marjaayoun in the south, a 440-km (275 miles) path that transects more than 75 towns and villages at altitude ranging from 1,000 meters to 1,800 meters (about 3,000-5,400 feet) above sea level. The LMT showcases the natural beauty and cultural wealth of Lebanon’s mountains and demonstrates the determination of the people of Lebanon to conserve this unique heritage. The trail brings communities closer together and expands economic opportunities in rural areas through environmentally- and socially-responsible tourism.
