Even though the cedars in the park are impressive, the whole place was a bit disappointing. It takes 30 minutes to walk along park alleys. There is a couple of stalls where you can buy local souvenirs and sweets. Locals are desperately trying to attract you attention in the off-season. It looks like they drowse low season away...

It sucked that most of the cedars was closed due to snow. I only got to walk a little bit of the Forrest. It's pretty enough, but not that impressive.

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.
