Tannourine Cedar Forest does not have the oldest cedars, although there are some very large trees. They have the most extensive hiking trails, and the trails are well marked. The views are great and the access is quite easy.

This reserve is beautiful for hiking. There are five main trails that you can choose. We chose trail 2. It was the shortest. On midway of this trail there is a breathtaking view of the valleys. There is a 5000 LL entrance fee.

We had really a great pleasure while visiting the forest. It is very well kept and organised. The trail is clear and you have some points with splandid views on the valley.

Great place to visit. The cedar is present in the lebanese flag for a reason. After visiting the place u can understand it and feel the power and spirit of the cedars forest. Its an interesting walk but not suitable for disabled persons

I have hiked with Libantrek in this area. With Jorge, professional, helpful and reliable guide, a master, has showed the most beautiful footpaths, providing botanic details about this area. I have enjoyed an amazing trek. Unique and rewarding trek in an unspoilt nature.
