About the reserve:

Tannourine is home to over 70 000 ancient cedar trees such as the Cedrus libani species, as well as a variety of pines, poplars, and other tree species (Cupressus, Pinus, Abies, Populus).

It is believed that some of these trees can sometimes be aged between 1000 and 2000 years of age. Covering 12 square km, Tannourine Nature Reserve lies in a splendidly beautiful area and protects one of the largest and densest cedar forests in Lebanon.

The area is rocky and mountainous with sharp slopes and a deep valley where cedars defy gravity and grow on extremely vertical slopes.


Beside the 70 000 ancient trees, Tannourine Nature Reserves is also known for its various types of birds such as eagles, owls, robins and wild animals such as hyenas, boars, squirrels, snakes and bats.

This reserve is enriched with floating lakes of water. It has more than one hundred springs and water sources.


About Balou3 Balaa

Balaa is very famous for its 250 meters deep natural sink hole that has been carved by water 160 million years ago! A magnificent waterfall can be observed during winter and spring with water vapors rising up to the surface!
