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

I suppose it was special for the mere fact of how much it means to Lebanon. Being from countries with an abundance of nature reserves it can be kinda normal for us. But regardless, the cedars are gorgeous and if you are crazy enough to walk there (as I was) it will take about a hour. Fortunately several people offered... More

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
