It is really worth a visit. You can ski, snowboard, play with snow or just take pictures with the cedars. It is for couples, for families and for friends, everyone can enjoy their time. You can even buy souvenirs from the surrounding shops. The forest is not very big but it has the oldest cedars and more importantly the most... More

Cedars, our symbol.. The most reserved tree in Lebanon.. There are many nature reserves for Cedars tree.. But this one is the most important especially the one which is the emblem of the country and the symbol of the Lebanese flag.

It's worth the drive only if you don't have anything more to visit, or if you are close by, and if the day is clear, you might get great views.

They are called the trees of our Lord . Said to be the oldest cedars in the world well known in biblical times when their wood was in great demand. The phoenicians traded in the wood too. They stand majestically at an altitude of about 2000 m above sea level. The cedar is the symbol of Lebanon and is on... More

The park itself was very beautiful and well maintained. The drive up the mountain though was just as breathtaking!

The cedar reserve is a beautiful area for reflection, high in the mountains of Lebanon. It's well worth a one-hour visit to marvel at these beautiful trees and the carvings.

We've visited the grove during one day-long stay in the area after an ATV tour to Qurnat as Sawda. The grove itself is nice but really small, there's in fact a single main 20-minutes route through it. Check google maps to see how it looks like. I'm not sure taking dedicated a bus tour to the cedars worth a full... More

Visited the Cedars as part of a trip up to Bcharre from Beirut. The drive up the mountain is gorgeous in itself. There aren't actually that many cedars left here, but its a lovely place for a stroll. The air feels so clean and even in the summer you can see snow capped mountains. A great escape from the hustle... More
