The Cedars of God, Bcharre

Admire the rare and majestic Lebanese cedar trees at The Cedars of God. This ancient forest once overflowed with this species of cedar, and its timber was favored by Egyptians, Romans, and Persians, to name a few. Sadly, exploitation has led to mass deforestation and this forest is now rigorously protected as a World Heritage Site. Walk among the imposing trees to admire their beauty, and keep your eyes peeled for some with trunks spanning more than 10 m (32 ft) across. Sitting at an altitude of 2,000 m (6,600 ft) above sea level, the peaceful forest provides a ruggedly beautiful landscape to explore.

  • There are only a few Cedars in Lebanon, is here to say. Cedar of Lebanon, which was once very common in the Mediterranean region. During a trip to the picturesque Quadisha Valley, you can hike above the village Bcharre through a small forest of cedar and reside between those beautiful trees. Even baby Cedar can be purchased at a nearby market.

  • Really a small area with Cedars. Walking through the alleys I could not stop thinking about how they had to look like the surrounding mountains covered with cedar forests. Huge trees, even 2-3 thousands of years remember times of splendor and wealth of Phoenicia, around them the younger just a hundred years młodzieniaszki. Unfortunately, the rest of their brothers cut in the trunk, not unique to our time. In the park there is also a small chapel, to which you can visit along the way. Before Park, souvenir stalls, mandatory place of issue of money;-) Entrance is paid "what grace". The attractions of little beds. In the area of 4 hotels. We slept in the Hotel Le Notre, that with all my heart.
