Qadisha Valley is a gorge that lies within the Bcharre and Zgharta districts in Northern Lebanon. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The valley has housed Christian monastic communities for many centuries. It’s now a destination where people seek peace, and where pilgrims pray. If you’re an adventurer or a photographer, make sure to visit the valley; it’s exciting and breathtaking!
The reserve in Ehden contains cedars and encloses 1,058 plant species which 40% of them are native plant species in Lebanon. This place is also rich with trees: 39 species of native trees have been identified.
