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

Several hundred year old cedars, biblical wonders, you stand in awe in sight of such beauty. The grow straight to the sky, a bluish green, branches spread like arms. The fresh clean mountain air was a treat and so worth the winding mountain road to reach the cedars, passing by Bsharri to visit Gibran's museum. One of the most memorable... More

Such a special little forest. The only remnants of the ancient cedar forest. Only a small area of forest remains but it has such a strong and ancient feeling. The trees are amazing and the walk through his forest was one of the most special walks I have ever experienced, and I have seen and been to many places. There... More
