Although the road trip up the the Cedars is long, once you arrive you will really understand how worthwhile it was. I can't say that there is anything that can compare to the majesty of this place. You feel yourself transported back to a time before the hustle and bustle of modern-day life, a time where the simple pleasures of... More

Fresh air and beautiful views. The road was narrow but during spring it was safe enough for me! Short easy walks or more challenging. You choose!

Going to the Cedars of Lebanon is a visit in time to a forest that dates over 6000 years old. It's small compared to other sites but that'd what left of the cedar of lebanon mentioned in the bible... great to go with family and kids. A lot of souvenir shops around.

It has always been a dream to see the Cedars of Lebanon. The park is simply stunning. There is a choice of a short walk or longer through the park with it's majestic Cedar trees. The park does not make provision for "disabled" travellers and all who visit must be able to climb stairs and walk on rough terrain. Simply... More

One of the most beautiful places in Lebanon, where history meets with nature. There you can see many old big cedar trees. Nearby you can enjoy some snacks and buy souvenirs. Highly highly recommend

This forest is really beautifully, very well maintained and there is a nice path to let you go around. The walking time is around 2 hours if you want to enjoy the amazing view over the mountains and the ancient threes all around you. If you like the nature you cannot stop to take a picture of every corner.

Meditative place unless crowds get on your back. Sit down and relax under the majestic tree giants. They will tell you the Phoenicians stories.
