The Lebanese cedar is a national symbol and has been an important tree throughout the history of the region. This forest is a sanctuary where the trees are protected - the oldest one is over 6000 years old! The trees are impressive and majestic. The entrance into the forest is by donation.

Love the forest of the Cedars, the trees have their own kind of charm , rarely found anywhere else. the space is well organized and there are no entrance fees, just donations for the forest which I encourage everyone to do to keep and preserve this natural wealth. the path is clearly defined to preserve the new trees, and the...

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.

The trip to the cedars were amazing. The views over the mountains and all the apple trees made the journey to the cedars really interesting. The snow was still there even though it was a warm day. Really cool to see the tree that's in their flag as well.

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
