It is a place not to miss visiting if you are in Lebanon. A great walk in the nature among hundred of years old Cedars. And a great ski resort. Whenever I have a chance I go there in the summer and make sure my children are with me.

This is the symbol of Lebanon and on it is on its flag. A must see in Lebanon and spend few days to do some outdoor activities and see the surroundings. High mountains and these trees are really old and impressive. In winter, it is a ski destination.

They are just 400 cedars, but their dynasty is filling the globe. Maybe because they are mentioned in all Holy books and they are still there. Entrance is free but you are asked to donate any sum you can. The reserve itself in small but its meaning is huge. the small church is something not to be missed. Everything inside... More

Being Lebanese and describing the Cedars might seem a little extreme but to say it in simple words "A must visit while in Lebanon".

Can't visit Lebanon without visiting the Cedars of God in Becharreh, North Lebanon! It has one of the oldest Cedar trees in the world! It's breathtaking to visit during winter as well as summer! Covered with snow or covered with flowers and cedar pines! Also if you need to buy something from the souvenir shop, I recommend the 2nd shop... More

Everybody should go to cedars of God for a visit. The only problem is the parking. Other than that, this place is great. And of course, don't forget to buy souvenirs 😀

The place is quite small since most of the cedars have been cut but it's really quiet and it has something magical. Don't expect something huge and impressive but more a cosy little place. If you're looking for something bigger and a place to hike you better go to Al-Shouf cedar nature reserve. In addition if you come from Beirut... More

Nice attraction in a wonderful vally. I can only recommend to spend few more hours down the Kabicha Valley to visit the Monasteries and Hermitages maybe with a fresh Almaza on your side.

The Cedars of God forest was exceptionally beautiful. I knew that seeing the cedars in person was going to be great, but it was better than I expected. These are amazing trees. At the Cedars of God there is a trail where you can walk among the cedars. It is a bit hilly and rocky so wear comfortable shoes. The... More
