What to discover on the way:
Beautiful path that goes through the Shouff Biosephere Reserve from Masser es shouf to Barouk. The trail crosses over two Cedar forest containing cedars that are over 2000 years old! The second part of the hike covers part of the Barouk Patriotic trail (this trail of 6 hours is a loop around Barouk village) ending at Barouk village itself. Don't forget to stop at the fountain to get some pure mountain water.
