Qadisha Valley

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

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

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.

The Cedars of God

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

Reviewed By halcatra - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

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!

Baatara Pothole

Reviewed By samerabikhalil - Lebanon, null

The Baatara pothole is a natural site. We may say it's risky and dangerous to visit or discover. But if you respect the instructions, and if you respect the nature, nothing harmful will happen. I don't want to talk about the pothole's history or geography, I let you search for it. But I really want to share with you my experience in visiting the pothole, and what I felt about. Amazing is a small word. Speechless is truly your reaction when reaching the pothole. I visited the site many times, but the most impressive one is when I went there walking for three hours on the snow wearing the snowshoes. All the region was a marvelous scene, everything white, everything silent except the wind, and once there the sound of the waterfall cut the one of the wind. You go there and you want to stay for a long time, because you feel released. Even in spring or summer, a sunny moment with all green will give the same effect. After all, Lebanon is about mountains and nature that deserve to visit.
