The Cedars of God, Bcharre

#1 of 32 in Things to do in North Governorate
Forest Historic Site
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.

  • The Park of Cedars of Lebanon, the tree symbol of the country is very interesting. You don't pay to get in, you give all you want to do the track and meet secular trees. The track is on dirt and has ups and downs, so if you can go for help in tennis. Requires a little effort and people with special needs will have trouble making the path.
