Trip to Bsharri and Ehden
Saturday 17 August 2019

Another part literary part natural trip:

1) Visit the Maronite Patriarchat in Dimane on the way to Hadath al Jebbeh.
The Deir has a lovely Church and the Rock of Youssef. Standing on this dangerous looking promontory
gives you a panoramic view of the Kashisha Valley.
2) Then we will visit Gebran Khalil Gebran’s museum in Bsharri.
There you will find a large number of his paintings, not commonly found in published books.
Akram will give a 20 minute talk about Gebran and his works.
3) Lunch will be in Ehden at the AU PERE LOUP restaurant.
They specialize in mezzes (and no main meals). Under large "Delbeh" trees, we will try several local dishses,
including the famous Ehden/Zghorta “Kebbeh Qras”.
4) In the afternoon, we will take our time to walk around the Horsh Ehden Natural Reserve (or the Arz of Ehden)
This reserve is wild full of walk ways. Those who wish to take long walks can do that while others can rest around on benches.

Charges: exceptionally this time, KwL would like to increase the charge up to $60
as there are entry and guide fees that we could not discount in the museum and the reserve.
Next time, we will return to $50.
$60 to include bus fare, guide in Ehden’s Arz, lunch and entries to the museum and the reserve.
$30 is a special price for those 18 years or younger.
Payment on day of trip.
