The largest of Lebanon's nature reserves, the Al-Shouf Cedar Nature Reserve stretches from Dahr Al-Baidar in the north to the Niha Mountain in the south.

Blanketed with oak forests on its northeastern slopes and juniper and oak forests on its southeastern slopes, the reserve's most famous attractions are its three magnificent cedar forests: Maasser Al-Shouf, Barouk and Ain Zhalta-Bmohary, in addition to the Fakhreddine fortress in Niha.

From the summit of the rugged mountains, visitors can take in panoramic views of the countryside, eastward to the Bekaa Valley, the Ammiq wetland and Qaraoun Lake, and westward toward the Mediterranean Sea.
