Lebanon Traveler - - NEWS -

The Le­banon Moun­tain Trail As­so­ci­a­tion (LMTA) or­ga­nized its first fundraiser gala din­ner at Beirut’s Phoeni­cia Ho­tel on 5 De­cem­ber, 2014. The Le­banon Moun­tain Trail (LMT) Gala gath­ered 290 guests, in­clud­ing the Min­is­ter of En­vi­ron­ment, Mo­hammed El Mash­nouk, Pres­i­dent of the Board, Karim El-jisr, and board mem­bers, friends, donors and sup­port­ers who came to­gether to cel­e­brate the LMT and pledge ad­di­tional sup­port to the trail. Speak­ers and live per­form­ers an­i­mated the event. The fes­tive event fea­tured a live auc­tion of art pieces, which were gen­er­ously do­nated by Le­banese artists. The LMT is a 470km path and the first long dis­tance trail in Le­banon. It crosses 75 towns and vil­lages from the north to the south at al­ti­tudes rang­ing from 600 to 2000 me­ters above sea level, as well as one World Her­itage Site, two bio­sphere re­serves, and four pro­tected ar­eas. The LMT pro­motes re­spon­si­ble tourism and in­vites trav­el­ers to ex­pe­ri­ence the beauty of Le­banon’s hid­den trea­sures and con­serve them. Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of its sup­port­ers, the LMTA is now able to con­tinue its mission to de­velop and pro­tect the trail, and safe­guard the cul­tural and nat­u­ral as­sets along it, while en­hanc­ing the in­come lev­els of lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.
