Great Mountain Trails of the World Map

We received helpful feedback on the great mountain trails of the world blog post, including the suggestion to add a new trail: the Lebanon Mountain Trail.  Below is a location map of the long-distance mountain trails we’ve identified so far.

We would be really interested to know if there is anyone who has hiked all these trails.

    I experienced hiking on the Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT) for three days in April, 2010. It was a wonderful experience! The trail and nature of Lebanon are so beautiful! The LMTA provides well trained guides, comfortable guesthouse arrangements, delicious food, and fabulous hospitality. I highly recommend the Lebanon Mountain Trail to hikers around the world, for it will be remarkably memorable!

    I had a wonderful experience on Lebanon Mountain trail 2012, here is one share Written on 13 April 2012 after experiencing a wonderful journey with LMT from Jezzine- NIha- Maaser el Shouf- Baruk- Ain Zhalta:

    Ode to the Mountain-

    Every day it offers a new sight, a new spirit and a fresh breath;

    It does not do an effort to change, to look different, and to show its beauty;

    It all happens naturally, genuinely.

    Every time i rediscover myself through a walk a hike a jump, i am reborn;

    It could be the challenge, the discipline, the silence, the solid grounds and strenght around;

    Silent, yet so expressive and loud;

    The sound of the springs, of the snow being crushed and molded to fit “Me”, my steps, my soul;

    The wind that blows from all sides and takes the sight in all directions, the spirit floating without limits;

    Extreme and sweet feelings, thoughts of fearless moments;

    Around were waves of mountains;

    I was eye to eye with tops of mountains;

    I felt drunk up in the air;

    Drunk to the extent i believed i was equal to them;

    Freedom is the water i drank.

    Again and again and again – I would do it;

    Step by step – All is created;

    With love and respect, i bow to God’s creation, to Nature.

    Depending on the criteria for a trail to be classified as one of the “great mountain trails of the world”, the Australian Alps Walking Track might be added to the map:
