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.

Definitely the scenery is breathtaking and if you visit the valley of Kadisha it is worth getting close. We did the walking path from Bsharri, and are around 8 km uphill. We thought it was not much and we did not get taxi... In the end we ended up getting to a high school bus in the middle of the road (we should have given them grief). To get off is much better, there we took a secondary road that goes behind the Creperie (a foodtrack) and is only down to Bsharri.
