Great place to visit. The cedar is present in the lebanese flag for a reason. After visiting the place u can understand it and feel the power and spirit of the cedars forest. Its an interesting walk but not suitable for disabled persons

I have hiked with Libantrek in this area. With Jorge, professional, helpful and reliable guide, a master, has showed the most beautiful footpaths, providing botanic details about this area. I have enjoyed an amazing trek. Unique and rewarding trek in an unspoilt nature.

Enchanting forest. Trails are well marked, and varied, with varying difficulty levels. Allow a 1/2 day at least, and bring plenty of water.

there is an old song for a famous Lebanese singer FAYROUZ "here the sky is closer". once in tannourine you must go to the forest and have your walk there between the cedars.. its really nice, peaceful and helps to relax

This is a wonderful escape outside the city. Great for hiking and snowshoeing in winter season. A beautiful reserve full of amazing natural scenery.
