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

An ancient grove of cedars, the oldest in Lebanon, makes a beautiful site.
It is one of five Unesco sites in Lebanon. The Cedars have couple of thousands of years - they are really impressive! In the summer season you can walk around the forest. In winter there is far too much snow and you can see them from outside. It is a shame though it does not change the fact they are still impressively beautiful! There are a lot of souvenir shops around. Some shop assistants are very pushy and it's better to avoid them, but there are some calm and friendly ones as well. You can get nice things with a very good price. We bought magnets for 1 dollar each from an elderly ill gentleman - he was super charming!

The museum consists of various sketches and paintings of Khalil Gibran. We can also find here some objects that belonged to him, and some of his letters. Definitely the best moment of the visit is when you can sit in the crypt where the greatest Lebanese poet is buried. Do it with one of his books in your hand... after a while you will understand better his epitaph "I am alive like you / and I now stand beside you / close your eyes and look / around you you will see me / in front of you". NB No photography nor filming is allowed inside the museum.

At the very beginning of the qadisha valley it is one of two monastery accessible by car (the other one is deir st antonios qoshaya) it’s one of the ancient monastery built in the rocks and between the mountains. It’s also special because of the st vierge chaplets that appeared on the rocks. It has sheltered Christian monastic communities for many centuries. And it has welcomed several priests who chosed to escape their lives for prayers amd lived their entire life in it. And very lately “abouna yacoub” who was able to do miracles while still alive. ( you can visit his tomb and the cave where he was living)

Set in a deep valley this monastery is more or less carved into the rock face. There is a functional church which is partly a cave and there is also a museum with an old printing press once used for printing Syriac or Aramaic A nice lady by the name of Natalie will greet you in reception. Once the formalities are over you take a lift to the accommodation. (They do have a lift!) The rooms are nice as are the bathrooms. Being January, the rooms were well heated. Downstairs was the restaurant which served very good meals plus you could buy your own wine from the shop. If you are religious you can attend the services in the church. If not, the monks won't bother you. When I got up in the morning and walked out for a smoke, the staff served me a Lebanese coffee! The views are stunning and it is all very quiet! Great place! .

Walking to this cave monastery is an adventure in itself. You walk down the valley wall and then hug the wall until you get to the cave. The head clearance is very low. It's hard to imagine somone living here but the views are great and you get some insight into the hermits of years past.
