…get to know the local community, customs, tradition and lifestyle, and living with seasons,

… explore biodiversity of Sharr mountain and benefits of cultural and natural diversity

… visit inspiring natural and cultural places around,

… learn about and from wilderness,

…reflect on our role in this world,

…enjoy, have fun and much more 🙂
