Jaj Cedars Lebanon

Situated in 2.000 to 2.500 meters high on the western slopes of Mount Lebanon, the Cedars of Jaj are the last remnants of the once-vast Cedar forests of the "Land of Nega" – which reached as far south as the source of the Adonis river at Afqa (Adonis Cave) – of the Phoenicians kings of Byblos*. From these trees came the wood for the solar boats, coffins, and mummification compounds of the ancient Egyptians of the earliest dynasties.
