The Cedars of God

An ancient grove of cedars, the oldest in Lebanon, makes a beautiful site.

Reviewed By charbs1 - Beirut, Lebanon

This forest is a small forest in the middle of the Cedars region. There is no specific entrance fee, just donations (pay as much as you want). You can walk around in like approx. 45mins. You'll see the huge old cedar trees which are the symbol of Lebanon. In the middle of the forest there is such a pretty small church that adds up to how holy the place is. And then you can see on your way, a big tree, in which sculptures are incarnated in it by a Lebanese artist, and there search for the hidden sculptures in the tree and enjoy the AMAZING views.

Horsh Ehden Nature Reserve

Reviewed By Cew00

Although disappointed not to see the wild animals anywhere on our way, kids were overjoyed with the experience that is sadly enough, becoming rare in Lebanon. Make plans to spend way more than announced on the brochure though as the sceneries are great and the way up is not a joy ride :)

Qadisha (Kadisha) Valley

This holy gorge is filled with ancient monasteries and hermitages carved into its cliffs.

Reviewed By Tony W - Sydney

One of the things that has struck me about Lebanon is the sheer natural beauty of the country. The mountain regions are breath-taking, especially in winter. If you are going to visit (and you should) it is advisable to take an experianced driver as the roads are narrow and driving in Lebanon is interesting with drivers having a somewhat casual relationship with the road rules.

Gibran Museum

Reviewed By Arielruffian - Singapore

I am a fan of Gibran's poetry but really did not like his art. The museum has a mausoleum where Gibran's remains are interred and it is pretty, set amongst flowers and an amazing view of mountain, snow and trees. Worth while if you are a Gibran fan.

Deir Qozhaya

Reviewed By Manoul - Beirut, Lebanon

Qazahya is located in the Zgharta District in the North Governorate of Lebanon. It belongs to the Lebanese Maronite Order, known as Baladites.
It is dedicated to Saint Anthony the Great. It is commonly called Qozhaya, in reference to the valley in which it is located. The valley of Qozhaya, along with the valley of Qannoubine to which it is connected to the west, form what is called the valley of Qadisha.
A good place to visit if you want to know where the first printing in Middle East was installed because In 1584, the first printing press of the Middle East was installed in this monastery.

Deir Mar Elisha

Reviewed By IanHolder - Raymond Terrace, Australia

Though rather busy, the location, and the historic artefacts and information, add to the beauty and holiness of this no-longer-used monastery. Well worth the walk, or drive, down the mountain; the sign-posted Way of the Cross is a good diversion off the road for walkers to Deir Mar Elisha.

Deir Qannoubin

Reviewed By IanHolder - Raymond Terrace, Australia

Paked with what appeared to be a school group, this place was nevertheless a joy to visit. The church is exceptionally beautiful, and the areas open to visitors are worth seeing, and a respite for weary legs after the walk from Deir Mar Elisha [though transport is available to ply the main distance, travelling back and forth]. The sensor-driven speaker introduction was useful and a good use of a plea to respect the holiness of the place.

Qadisha Caves

Reviewed By Bassam N

On the way from Bcharre to Cedars, this place is fantastic, you can see the pure cristal water flowing all over the cave. This is the potable water of many villages near by, and also it is used in production of electricity for Tripoli city.
Highly recommended
