Everyone says you should go to the cedars, so off we went... expecting a mere group of trees but we were blown away by the reserve. Beautiful natural forest with feeling of remoteness, peace and beauty. Walked up through amazing ancient woods with what looked like living bonsai trees growing out of the rocks. The drive up was incredible with... More

It is not very big or special, just don't expect too much. But it is a nice forest space to enjoy nature and walk around to relax.

If you're traveling in Lebanon you will see cedar trees depicted everywhere you go, including the national flag. Sadly there aren't many of the actual trees left to be seen. The Cedars of God (of Lebanon) are one of, if not the only place that you can walk through a natural and ancient cedar forrest while visiting the country. The... More

I recommend this place for a short hiking tour between cedars trees. I felt like I was so close to the sky.

it is always a majestic place. But the main access road is congested, full of junk eateries, there is no safety no manners. This road should be closed to traffic, only to pedestrians. The Cedars entrance is dirty, the walk thru is left to neglect, no proper maintenance, no supervision. A lot of things should be done. But who's responsible?

The Cedars are magnificent sight we loved our long travel and drive there but were not at all disappointed. The beautiful aroma from the Cedar engulfs the surrounding, Air is crisp and you can sense every breath you take. There is a small church where you can sit and pray to God. Also there is an artist who has carved... More
