A mysterious network of 9 km of underground caves and a veritable treasure trove of stalactites and stalagmites (with the biggest one in the world: 8.2m). Visitors can see the natural formations in the lower grotto up close by riding on boats that easily navigate the maze-like space. This part of the cavern takes you to a beautiful underworld millions of years in the making.

Harissa in Jounieh LebanonHarissa - Lady of Lebanon
A Harissa, a statue of Our Lady of Lebanon with her arms outspread over Jounieh Bay, is one of the country’s most renowned manmade landmarks. It is the most visited sanctuary in Lebanon and is accessible via a highway carved into the side of the mountain, or via the “telepherique”, a cable car and funicular railway carrying visitors from Jounieh coastline, 600 meters up to the mountain peak.

Byblos ruins LebanonByblos - Jbeil
Byblos overwhelms the senses with its ancient heritage. The oldest continually inhabited town in the world still looks exactly like the ancient Phoenician port it was a few thousand years ago.

During your stay in the Cedars

No pre-arranged tours are available, however we recommend to visit the following sites:

The Cedars of LebanonThe Cedars Forest

Throughout centuries, the cedars had been the dream of the kings and leaders of history, such as Khufu [Cheops], Nabuchodonosor, King David, and Salomon. This eternal forest is at 1955m above sea level. It encompasses 450 cedar trees which tell 4500 years of history. In 1877, the moutassaref Rustum Pasha built the forest famous walls which played a great role in the preservation and survival of the cedars. The French poet Lamartine visited the forest in 1832, and was inspired by its grandeur and splendor. Today, the forest witnesses a real care thanks to the committee of the Cedars Friends, that is preserving it and turning it unto an open art museum.

Besharry village north Lebanon near the CedarsBcharry Village and Qadisha Valley
Besharry village is located just below the Cedars ski resort and the Qadisha valley lies between its northern and southern slopes. Besharry is endowed with numerous rivers, a deep valley, steep slopes and high peaks which make it unique. During eras of persecution, Besharry was a refuge for hermits, resulting in an abundance of hermitages on its slopes. The security it offered attracted monks and believers who built tens of monasteries resting on caves and grottos. Each of the many villages on both edges of the valley has a difficult-to-reach cave, still known as "Al Aassi". The springs of crystal-clear water, the basin-shaped valleys and some limited plains made Besharry an agricultural region in which grow various kinds of fruit trees. The wonderful gardens and meadows added beauty to the green nature. Churches, monasteries and hermitages are ancient vestiges surrounding Besharry from all sides. And to the horizon, rises one of the seven crosses that the villagers had set up on the different hills.

Bekaa Kafra village and Mar Charbel LebanonVillage of Bekaa Kafra
Bekaa Kafra is the highest village in Lebanon (1560m), lying about 5km from Besharry. It is the birthplace of Saint Charbel [1828-1898]. The miracles he worked outdid those of other Saints. Pope PiusVI proclaimed him Blessed in December 1965, then Saint in November 1977. In Bekaa Kafra, the oldest church is that of Saint Houshab, while the largest one is the church of Saint Joseph. The village of Bekaa Kafra, with the cooperation of the European Group, was recognized as a typical village in the heritage of the Middle East Cities' Memory.

Qadisha grotto LebanonQadisha Grotto
At 5km from Besharry, you will reach one of the most wonderful natural underground features in Lebanon: the Qadisha Grotto that was discovered in 1903. Then, with the onset of the Qadisha electric project, the first exploration was made in 1923. Up till today, speleologists have surveyed 778m of this cave whose halls look like forests of stalactites and stalagmites in a myriad of colors. Many authorities and experts began to set studies in order to explore additional parts of the cave which is more than ten million years old, improve it, and update its transportation lines.
