The oldest cedars are in a beautiful valley. They are apart of the Al Shouf Cedar Natural Reserve. They are extremely impressive trees. It’s not a large forest but, is said to contain 375 individual trees, two claimed to be over 3000 years old, ten over 1000 years, and the remainder at least centuries-old.
The Lebanese cedars are actually mentioned in the Bible. When fully mature the top forms a flat table like shape. In one area there were sculptures carved into a set of trees. It was amazing to see them and experience something that takes so long to create.
There are a couple of dozen souvenir shops. Most of them were selling the same things, stuff made from cedar. Anything you could ever not want was made from cedar and for sale.They would even customize it by burning your name into the item
