Description:

This time we are going to walk in Rehmala.

 

Baldati is pleased to invite you to discover a new Lebanese Village; it is a beautiful hike overlooking great views of the pine region.

Remhala is of syriac etymology meaning a sandy hill. It is situated on a sandy hill, on the shoulder of a valley, surrounded by four mountains.

It has a moderate climate and is habitable in winter and summer.

Its altitude ranges between 250m above sea level, at Jisr Al-Kadi, to 700m above sea level at Kabreshmoun.

 

From that amazingly beautiful location you can have a great view of the region and visit some important sites

 

At the end of the trip the Municipality is inviting us to traditional lunch(saj....) in Remhala Club.

About Remhala :

 

At first, Remhala was a forest until it was first inhabited by Gerges Hanna Daher, who came from Arjes, Zgharta, North of Lebanon. He worked there for one of the rich powerful families in Silfaya, known then by the western shahar.

After a while, our great grandfather, Gerges, moved to Rimhala where he built a very moderate house near Ibreen Convent. This convent was destroyed because of the earthquake in the year 1956, and it was rebuilt then.

Remhala started to flourish until it was owned by its rich and powerful families after more than a century (150 years).

They planted their land with olive trees and vines and figs as well as raspberry trees for silk worms and raising cattle.

Remhala is rich in its springs in addition to the river that separates it from Silfaya, Bou Zreideh, and Doueir Al Rumman.

Its people counted on four seasons, olives, grains, silk worms, and raising cattle. It was called “Jourat Al Thahab” because of its rich, satisfying seasons.

Remhala had 3 olive oil industries because of its rich olive trees which exceeded 7000 tons of oil yearly. It also had two mills and a small industry for soap.

It also had one public school and another related to the Convent of Ibreen.

In the year 1949 the municipality fixed the internal roads to improve agriculture. It also provided it with electricity and water.
