A natural treasure! These cedars have been around for hundreds if not thousands of years. Mentioned in the Bible and worth the long trip to reach them.

A drive up to Bcharre is definitely worth the effort (take a tour e.g. Lebanon Tours and Travel) and you pay a small fee to enter the reservation. We loved walking through the Cedar Forest reservation on a lovely sunny day among these towering trees...More

Located in a remote area of Lebanon, this is a must-see site. A walk through the forest to the carved trees and stopping inside the church was a wonderful way to start our vacation. The smell of the forest was intoxicating.

There are so impressive cedars in this small area. Huges and very old. I have enjoyed a wonderful sunset walking over the snow. It is a must to visite in Lebanon. This place is full of history and legends.

Majestic and magnificent, every cedar tree is impressive and holds so much history. Spend as much time as you can inside the reserve, the smell of the trees is a therapy by itself. It's impressive to learn how these trees grow and how old some...More

This small forest of cedar trees is a great place to visit. We were lucky enough to go in winter when the previous night there had been a large snow fall. This coated the trees making them look like a scene from a postcard. The...More

There are 2 ways to get to the cedars. One way is to drive there yourself. If you ate used to crazy middle east driving then you should be OK. You take the highway north of of Beirut towards Tripoli. About 30km before... More
