Night Hike - Lassa Afka Night Hike - Keserwan & Jbeil District
  • Our guide this time will be the moonlight!

    Starting from the hills of Lassa heading to Afka, we will hike in a relaxed setting lit by moonlight and perfumed by the calmness of nature
    We have chosen this specific time of the month as the moon would be in its full shape to enlighten our trail adding value to this amazing walk
    We will be hiking on an easy trail of around 8km with no major ascents among old juniper trees.

    Such hike cannot be perfected except with some manakish on saj and tea prepared by locals. This will boost our energy to continue our beautiful hike.

    WHERE: Lassa - Afka
    In Keserwan Jbeil region
    55 Km from Beirut
    1400 meters above sea level.

Night & Sunrise Hike - Kornet Sawda Night & Sunrise - Becharreh District
  • We will hike to the highest peak in Lebanon and the region at night guided by moonlight and watch the sun rising from an altitude of 3,089 m!

    The hike is a tough one but we have an easier option for those who would like to enjoy the ride. We will be divided into two levels:

    Level 7 around 21 km long mostly uphill. We will start from Dahr el Adeeb and go upwards on a bare trail. We will continue until we reach the peak.

    If you prefer an easier hike there is the possibility to take a lift in a pick-up to reduce a third of the path. Then you will meet with level 7 and continue the journey. The pick-up will accompany us along the way in case of need. It will be a Level 3 - 4 hike.

    We will reach the summit at sunrise time.

Hiking Trip - Ehmej to Arz Jaj - Jbeil District
  • Arz Jaj….
    Some of the oldest cedar trees are there. They are the remnants of the large forest of cedar trees that once covered the mountains.

    Several thousand years ago, when much of Mount Lebanon was covered by cedar trees, the groves of Jaj were one of the first forests to be chopped down. The profitable cedar wood was exported to Egypt and later to Jerusalem.

    Splendid survivors of this forest are still scattered on the peaks above the town of Jaj. They are easy to spot. Rounded in shape and very dark green in color, the trees are not readily confused with the much smaller pines at lower elevations.

    Trails exist up to these cedars, which grow out of what looks like bare rock, in groups of two or three.

    Our hike will be divided into two levels: LEVEL 3 and LEVEL 6.

04 Aug 2018

Hiking Trip - Ayoun Samak - Doniyeh District
  • We are heading to “Ayoun el Samak” one of the most amazing, “unknown” places in Lebanon. Located on the shores of “Nahr el Bared”, the river that separates “Doniyeh” from “Akkar” casa, “Ayoun el Samak” offers endless breathtaking and picturesque views that will leave you in awe.
    The name is inspired by the multiple water sources that nourish the river and creates with those masterpiece views.

    The area was and still is a major attraction for many artist and singers that filmed their video clips in its beautiful surroundings.
    It is really a hiking experience that is not to be missed. We have divided our hike into two levels.

    Level 2 - will be an easy walk along the river bank where we will see a lot of trees all along the shores.

About Us

About Us

Vamos Todos is an ecotourism NGO that promotes and encourages the love of nature amongst its members, thus seeing life through a new perspective.

The name Vamos Todos, which means "Let's go all together" was chosen to reflect the spirit of our club, where you can participate “in a different way, in a better way”, which is also our slogan, in any of the multitude of activities which will be organized for you, with one major goal in mind: HAVING A GREAT TIME.

The club was founded in September 2006, by Mark Aoun, a Lebanese guy who has been hiking for more than 20 years, and has been all over Lebanon as well as some other countries. He would like to share with you his love for nature and life, introducing you to the magnificent place which is our home country.

Our success goes to a professional team who gave from their heart to ensure this NGO’s success. We cannot omit mentioning those who were with Vamos Todos as of the beginning, namely: Alba Wardini who is the heart of Vamos Todos and Tania Charabati. We were one team at the launch of VT!

Special thanks to the professional guides, particularly Tony Fallakha and Elie Saade, who gave and are still giving so much for VT.

We, at Vamos Todos, plan to help you enjoy every single moment you spend with us by offering you a variety of social events, outdoor adventures, sports activities, overseas trips and unusual experiences which will whisk you away for a day or two from your daily routine, bringing you back happy, refreshed and ready to confront another tiring week of work.
