The Cedars of God, Bcharre

(4.4/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
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. Our Bcharre travel itinerary maker makes visiting The Cedars of God and other Bcharre attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Although thought that would have many more cedar, the journey deserves the penalty, since the beauty of these trees is a wonder. In addition if the entire area is snow-covered pan is better, although it prevents you ride longer. Highly recommended since it is rare to see them.
