Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Qadisha Valley is the kind of place you might think only exists in movies. This magnificent valley cuts into the land and is surrounded by soaring, pine-covered mountains on both sides.
The best way to enjoy the valley is on foot. Hike on the dirt road, which leads deeper into the valley and turn back whenever you get tired. For a more arduous hike, there are trails leading from Qadisha to Ehden that span 16km.
Qadisha is also home to various hermitages and monasteries. If you want to visit the monasteries, the Monastery of Mar Elisha and Deir Mar Semaan , a hermitage founded in 1112 A.D. are both beautiful and easy to get to. Just ask around and you will be pointed in the right direction.

Around 1.5 hours drive out from Beirut depending on traffic. Magnificent landscape with stunning views and a rich history. Many historical sites worth exploring as well as the nature and trails. Home to many saints from the grotto’s across this region as well as terraced fruit growing mountains. Well worth the trip out to see this natural landscapes.

The valley is amazing. If you want you can start walking down from becharre, through orchards. Then you join the main trail, walking past old monasteries. There are a couple of restaurants, up to a point, after which it becomes more isolated. If you organize a pick up , it’s a great one way walk, long but not too difficult .
Highly recommended, I’ve walked there many times

Take the long hike, it's worth it. There are so many stops on the way it makes it one great experience, hawka, Marina, Elysee, kannoubine convents are all wonderful. Even a young child enjoyed the walk. Highly recommended in spring or fall, if you can avoid the summer heat.

It is a great place to visit in Lebanon. It shows that the country does not consist of only archeological sites but has also great mountains. There are a lot of walking paths, churches and convents of all the religions in the country, picnic spots - a lot to do and see. If you are in Lebanon for a couple of days, it is definitely a must.

This valley is full of religious monuments and places of natural beauty. You can hike down a road well into the valley. There are waterfalls, monasteries, picnic areas, and a spectacular mossy wall of water.
