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 size of some of these trees indicates hundreds of years of age. There are a... More

We took a group tour with the wonderful Nakhal Tour company (well recommended) and it was a two hour journey through the beautiful mountains (2000m above sea level). As we traversed through the snow capped mountains on what was a gorgeous day we arrived at the place where the Cedars of Lebanon lay. In all their glory they were beautiful.... More

Not a large forest, but the trees look beautiful dripping with snow. One is immediately aware of the age of these trees, they are magnificent. Well worth the trip to see this sight.

Everyone says you should go to the cedars, so off we went... expecting a mere group of trees but we were blown away by the reserve. Beautiful natural forest with feeling of remoteness, peace and beauty. Walked up through amazing ancient woods with what looked like living bonsai trees growing out of the rocks. The drive up was incredible with... More

It is not very big or special, just don't expect too much. But it is a nice forest space to enjoy nature and walk around to relax.

If you're traveling in Lebanon you will see cedar trees depicted everywhere you go, including the national flag. Sadly there aren't many of the actual trees left to be seen. The Cedars of God (of Lebanon) are one of, if not the only place that you can walk through a natural and ancient cedar forrest while visiting the country. The... More
