Trip 398: Camping in Arsoun Pine Forest


Another splendid camping event with the Footprints Nature Club will take place on Saturday 30 Sep. & Sunday 1 Oct. 2017 in the very special and beautiful nature of Mount Lebanon, and specifically:

Camping in Arsoun Pine Forest

The Fall weather is promising to be perfect thus allowing us to enjoy the stay in a private park under the Pine Trees in the Arsoun Region.

The location is prepared with electricity, water and toilets. So no need to bother about these issues like you do in the wild camping trips.

That is not all, on Saturday night, we will enjoy a walk in the area nearby, since the moon will be big enough to light our way.

In the morning, we will have our breakfast of Manakish and Soft Drink or Tea, pack our stuff, and enjoy hiking in the region.

Reservations shall be done as soon as possible as places are limited. Payments will have to be paid in full before Saturday.

Note that Alcoholic Drinks are strictly not allowed during our trips and in the Camp...
