Tannourine Cedars

The Tannourine cedars can be found in a natural reserve in the municipality which comprises of over 60,000 trees, making it the largest sanctuary for this majestic species. The land is fertile and ideal for the growth of the cedars and overlooks the valley of Ain Ail Raha. You can also see them along the road to Hadath al Jebbej which is not in the best of conditions and winds through isolated but beautiful scenery right up to the Kadisha Valley gorge. Tannourine itself lies about 75km from Beirut, the capital of the country. Some other trees besides the cedars which can also be found in the reserve include the Pinus, the Populus and the Cupressus, all of which combine to form a unique ecosystem. The area is home to a range of wildlife and wild birds such as owls, robins, eagles and wild animals such as hyenas, snakes, boars, squirrels and bats to name a few. You can also spot the rare wolf there, which is a native to the area, but it would be best to travel in groups or hire a guide so you don’t get lost along the way. There are more than just trees there after all.
