BEYCBK
65.00 $

The most venerable representatives of the Cedars of Lebanon, which once covered the country's mountains, are in the Besharreh region in the North of Lebanon. Hundreds of trees stand on slopes 2,000 meters high in the shadow of the 3,088 meter peak of Qornet es- Sawda.
From Lebanon's cedar forests, Solomon got the timber to build his temple and palace, while the Egyptians Pharaohs used the wood carve their sarcophagi and 'sunships'.

Besharreh

In the north, the picturesque gateway to the Cedars of Lebanon, is the birthplace of the famous Lebanese poet Gibran Khalil Gibran. Here one may visit the Gibran Museum and the many ancient churches and monastries.

Kozhaya

Is part of the Holy valley where Maronites used to hide during the Ottoman’s period. Monastry of St-Antoine of Kozhaya is one of the numerous monastries built in this valley. It is built partly inside in the mountain and partly outside it. It is surrounded by a very beautiful panorama of forest and valley.
