Sadly the size of this protected Cedar reserve isn't huge BUT the laid out trail that weaves through the trees is excellent and well worth the walk through.

A lovely weather, mild temperatures (22 deg. Centigrade by 4pm midsummer), a Church at the end of the pathway that crosses the reserve for a tour through some of the most ancient cedars of the world. Not to be missed.

Oldest cedars of Lebanon. It quite small reserve, but very well preserved. It has a trail to visit the entire reserve where you can admire the cedars of God. A small church is built with authentic design. The reserve lacks guides for tourists.

The Cedars Forest has some amazing trees that have been damaged or cut over the years. Many years ago it looked much more impressive. Visit before they disappear altogether.

A cool place to visit. Small like a 20-30 minutes walk. There is no fixed entrance fees you pay what you want and got a card back as a souvenir which is kind of cool. Recommended to visit when in the area.

Breathtaking beauty, but embarrassingly small forest 🌲. A little too crowded on the weekends. Souvenir shops are fun to explore, especially the personalized cedar ornaments and local honey 🍯

It has only started to get colder here in Lebanon now. Snow will typically start in December. So, currently there is no snow.
