About the Lebanon Mountain Trail:
The Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT) is the first long-distance hiking trail in Lebanon. It extends from Al- Qbaiyat in the north to Marjaayoun in the south, meandering through or near 75 towns and villages, perched 600 to 2,000 meters above sea level. With a total length 440 km (275 miles), the LMT showcases the natural beauty and cultural wealth of Lebanon's mountains. It is dotted with Roman ruins, temples, mosques, churches and rock-cut monasteries dating back over a thousand years. It offers 3 protected areas, 2 biosphere reserves, 1 World Heritage Site and many Important Bird Areas. The trail is also an economic lifeline as it supports a network of tourism providers and activities in remote mountain areas. Every year more than 50,000 visitors walk on the LMT including Lebanese and foreign hikers. Established in October 2007, the mandate of the LMT Association is to protect and promote the LMT for future generations.
