The Cedars of God in Bsharri, Lebanon, hold deep historical significance as they are one of the last remaining groves of the majestic Cedrus libani, or the Lebanon cedar, a symbol of resilience and strength for the country. 🌲🇱🇧

    Beautiful place worth a visit, well organised and the tracks are clean. The giant cedar trees are charming and the sculptures engraved on some of them are fascinating. You can easily park the car at the entrance and you can also visit the shops at the entrance for some refreshments or to buy souvenirs. The hike inside the place is easy and visitors from all ages can enjoy it without a problem. If it was warm weather, the temperature inside is definitely cooler. Definitely recommended.

    I just loved this place, there no words to describe the trees in this place. They are huge, natural, and most importantly, clean. But there aren't a big selection of trees like other ceder Sanctuaries. But my favourite thing in this place is the Souk.People there are one of the kindest, and there products are one of the best. 100% recommend of your beside the place

    Magical Place, a must go-to destination for tourists and locals!!! 🌳🦌⛰️ The trail is very organized (ideal for hiking), free entrance (donations only). At the end of your trail you can enjoy the Creation and Exhibition by The Artist Rudy Rahme.

    Magical and an iconic historic place that represents Lebanon at the core. Those trees go back 5000 years if not more. The cedar trea on the flag represents strength and longevity as Lebanon experienced multiple civilizations that ruled that region. Lebanon is super rich in history, culture and many different ethnic groups.

    Free entry and parking, 45 minute round trip walk. Nice scenery and trees, but it’s quite small. Little malus for the hundreds of souvenir shops outside
