The Cedars (Cedars of the Lord)

120 km north east of Beirut, known to the Lebanese as the Cedars of the Lord, Cedars are among the last survivors of the immense forests that lay across Mount Lebanon in ancient times.

The most famous Cedars are in Bsharreh region where about 375 trees, some between 1200 and 2000 years old, stand on slopes 1950 meters high in the shadow of the 3088 meters peak of Qornet Essawda (the highest in Lebanon).

The village of the Cedars, over 2000 meters in altitude, is a very picturesque ski resort and sky lifts.
