  • A good place to visit. The Tannourine Cedar forest is the biggest in Lebanon. I enjoyed my visit and recommend it for those who love nature.  more »
  • As the Cedars of Lebanon are challenged by climate change, every reserve becomes important. This small reserve has some beautiful trees and is easy to walk through.  more »

  • There are three different trails that take you into the forest... The whole forest is well kept and the trails are clear... Such a beautiful place to visit... The entrance fee is 5000 L.L
  • If you have time for a long drive to a pristine and quiet hiking destination then this is for you!! Gorgeous and breathtaking views among the handful of trails available. Trails are well marked and for all different hiking levels. At 7 months pregnant, I attempted trail #4 which is around 5km and 2+ hours. During the trail there are times when other trails cross through so you have a chance to change and get on another trail (trail #4 intersects with trail #3 for instance). Beautiful scenery, well preserved, and well worth the drive to this reserve. In winter, dress well. It can be very cold (but still worth a hike). The only critique is the bathroom near the parking lot - it is atrocious and poorly maintained. You’re better off using nature to relieve yourself than their bathroom facility.
  • Although it doesn't compare to the Shouf Biosphere Reserve, in terms of surface and other criteria, the Tannourine Cedars Forest is a beautiful and welcoming site... The unique geography and topography of the forest has sheltered the area from excessive tourist activity. The hiking trails, here, in the rocky terrain of the mountains are not for the faint of heart. However, a trip to Tannourine is well worth it. The stunning mountainous landscapes, with cedars seemingly defying gravity and growing on extremely vertical slopes, is impressive. Visitors will also enjoy the opportunity to discover rock-cut or naturally occurring grottos on their hike, as well as rare flowers particular to this high altitude terrain! Instagram @profnasr
  • Wonderfull place to go in any season let s see u there!
  • Very nice place for a walk or hiking initiation. Buying honey at the forest entrance is a must, especially the one that has been certified by the American University Hospital proving that it is pure honey without any human additives.
