I have seen some amazing sights in the world and this is up there with the rest. The German team have done an amazing job making the grotto accessible for everyone. Don't leave Lebanon without seeing this - awesome!

If you want to visit anywhere in Lebanon make sure you book to see this place. Apart from the amazing stalagmites and stalactites in the Upper and Lower Grottoes, you also get to enjoy a ride up to the Upper Grotto via a rope way and a boat ride in the Lower Grotto. We didn't manage to see the theater... More

if you are going you must go there and see the wonder of nature in side this cave. The upper cave contains a great concentration of a variety of magnificent crystallized formations. you can walk through the upper cave and take electric boats for the lower cave.
