Eternal symbol of Lebanon, the Cedars fascinate with their majesty and great age. Known for their long lasting wood resistant to temperature, humidity and decay, the trees were widely exploited in antiquity. The most famous cedars are undoubtedly those of Bsharreh, many of which are hundreds of years old. Some of these trees, estimated at between 1500 and 3000 years old, have reached a height of 35 meters and their trunks are between 12 and 14 meters around.
With branches positioned like arms at prayer, the so-called Cedars of the Lord are at their most impressive when seen under layers of whit snow. The resort of the Cedars near Bsharreh is also known for its excellent skiing and the exceptional view of the Qadisha valley seen from the highest slopes.
