To go to Bcharré, minibuses are leaving Trablous from Abdel Hamid Karani Square (near the tourist office). The price is 2500 LL (June 2002).
In Bcharré I tried to find a service taxi to The Cedars. Couldn’t find one so I paid 8000 LL for a taxi. If you want to walk back take the road past the Qadisha Grotto. Bring sun protection and a lot of water, as the sun is hot. The view is fantastic! There are not many cars going this way so if you want to have a lift you should take the other road.
You can take the minibus leaving the roundabout in Tripoli city center. It costs LL2,000 and takes 1.5 hours. The ride is very pleasant and the bus can climb up the mountain to get into Kadisha Valley. You should take the seat on the left side while going up. The first bus leaves at 7:30am and this allows you to explore fully in Bcharre if you just do a day trip.
