Ain Aar Middle School Hike to Kfardebian

Richard Bampfylde

Early Saturday morning on September 29, 66 Middle School students and Mr. Elie Aswad, Mr. Assad Hajj and Ms. Jaana Lundholm were dropped off at Kleeiat, which was their starting point for the 6km hike to Kfardebian. This trail entitled ‘Santier de Christ’ is a particularly inclined one with many breathtaking views along the river. The participants not only got a thorough physical workout while walking and climbing, but perhaps as importantly they had the chance to relish parts of Lebanese history along the trail as well as experience exceptional bird life. Thank you Mr. Hajj for being the knowledgeable guide on this hike!
