Hal Far Mystery Walk - 11th July 2009

About 30 members opted to wake up early for this walk. After crossing Wied il-Mixta, we passed by Ghar ir-Rih and continued towards il-Mara till we reached Fort Benghisa. From there we headed towards il-Kappella tal-Kuncizzjoni, crossed Wied il-Buni & headed upslope in a secondary road parallel to Wied il-Qoton. We struggled to pass through the last stretch of this valley, reached tal-Baqqari Archeological Remains, and finally had a longish break at the cliff edge.

Afterwards we continued along the cliff edges, passed by ridge of Wied Znuber and descended the same valley from the other side… Here we had another rest until we completed the circular walk near Ghar Hasan.

Walk Leader: Simon
Duration: 4hours (0515-0915) including all breaks
Distance: 13 km
