Your guide to hiking the Lebanon Mountain Trail!

The Lebanon Mountain Trail is the first long-distance hiking trail in Lebanon.

The Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT) is the first long-distance hiking trail in Lebanon. It extends from Andaket in the north to Marjeyoun in the south.

The LMT showcases the natural beauty and cultural wealth of Lebanon's mountains. It is divided into 27 sections, each of which is 9 to 24 km long and can be hiked in one day.
