It is one of five Unesco sites in Lebanon. The Cedars have couple of thousands of years - they are really impressive! In the summer season you can walk around the forest. In winter there is far too much snow and you can see them from outside. It is a shame though it does not change the fact they are still impressively beautiful! There are a lot of souvenir shops around. Some shop assistants are very pushy and it's better to avoid them, but there are some calm and friendly ones as well. You can get nice things with a very good price. We bought magnets for 1 dollar each from an elderly ill gentleman - he was super charming!

Very relaxing visit in October. It's a very peaceful experience to walk on the path and see the huge trees. We went on a Sunday and it was quiet though it was pretty busy. There was an outdoor mass at 1pm which we also enjoyed very much. The park is well maintained. You can feel at one with nature there.

This place makes you feel so tiny in comparison to how enormous the trees are. If only the trees could tell what they have seen in those thousands of years. If you had to choose one place to visit during your trip, it's definitely this one.

Gorgeous forest of majestic cedar trees, the symbol of Lebanon. It is a must see if you visit this beautiful country. Magnificient old cedars standing out there for thousands of years. Consider visiting Gebran Museum in Becharre in the nearby and hiking in Kadisha valley.

You cant pass by the north mountain without a small walk between thousand of year trees. A must do visit to the symbol of Lebanon, the cedars tree. And dont miss to buy few souvenirs from local shops next to the entrance, its a bit expensive but worth every penny, you wont find it anywhere else.

I was really looking forward to seeing another cedar forest in Lebanon, as they are shrinking. I had visited the one in Chouf in the summer and looked forward to seeing the north in winter. It was so tiny though. You could walk the whole thing in about 20minutes. If you want to see cedars, definitely head to Chouf!

I've been there so many times, and i will always visit it. just walking between the trees, take a deep breath and let out all your stress. The trees are pretty old. and the oldest one goes back to 2500 years ago! The cedars of God, those trees know the story of our ancestors.

Cedars are the symbol of Lebanon and this is a tranquil cedar forest reserve. Makes a good walk.
There are souvenir shops in the nearby small village of Cedars and an excellent restaurant where we had lunch.

I’ve been here 4 times already and never have I been bored of the surroundings! I love seeing the beauty of the oldest cedar tree and the cedars. Love it as well, the Cedars of Lebanon was used to build the first marvellous and amazing temple for God in the Bible. A must visit place!
