Hike along the LMT
One of the best ways to explore the village’s natural heritage is to hike the valley and mountain trails surrounding it. Hasroun is a starting point on the Lebanese Mountain Trail, a 470km-long hiking trail extending from Aandqet in the north to Marjaayoun in the south. The trail continues through the neighboring villages of Bazaoun, Bqorqacha and Bqaa Kafra, passing cedar trees, ending in the historic town of Bsharreh. The trek includes a stop at Nabaa Ghrakiya, a well-known fresh water spring in Hasroun that is said to cure kidney disease. Immerse yourself in the area and trek with a local guide such as Georges Zougheib (70 105546), Joe Rahme (03 832060) or Pierre Germanos (03 378403).
