Kneisseh mountain is one of my favorites destinations. Sceneries are stunning in all seasons! We parked at the "first lebanese flag" place (Falougha). Beautiful and easy ascent to the summit of Kneisseh mountain following dirt paths and off-trail hills ups and downs for more ascent. At the waypoint "View over Zahle", an amazing view over bekaa can be the best place for a lunch break. At this time of the year, the sceneries are amazing especially the flowers and the beautiful artificial lakes of Falougha and Kfarselwan. The steep descent (see waypoint) should be done with caution because there is no trail and you have to find your way down (This is easy for "good" hikers). The final part of the hike is part of the lebanon mountain trail (LMT).
