Dear hikers,

Rashaya el foukhar is a Lebanese village in the district of hasbaya in the district of hasbaya in the nabathiye governate in Southern Lebanon. It is located on the on the western slopes of Mount hermon at an altitude ranging from 750 to 1250 m above sea level.
As its name suggests it is renowned for its clay market and products, which is believed to be the oldest in Lebanon.
Therefore, we will have the privilege to visit a workshop that specializes in producing handmade pottery.
The village's most famous clay product is the traditional water jar or ibrik, also known in Spain as "the Phoenician wine jar".

Exceptionally on this day, we will hike all together on easy trail inside a pine forest until we reach to the grave of an ottoman military.
Then we will go a downhill till we reach the pottery workshop. We will have the chance to learn how to manufacture these clay products plus we will have the opportunity to make some jars also.
After visiting the pottery workshop, we will visit st georges church which is one of the oldest churches in the area. It was attacked many times during the Israeli occupation.
We will then proceed to explore the village's charming old houses on the streets.

After that, we will head to esber guesthouse in rachaya le foukhar and we will have our delicious organic dinner.
