The grotto is split into 2 parts - the upper has breath taking views of stone curtains, columns, draperies and mushrooms, with the winding path taking you a few hundred metres into its total length of 2200m. At its deepest part, a 32-storey building can...More

With only one ticket you will get access to two caves, gondola lift and an small train. The caves are such a WOW as they are between the mountains. you'll enjoy a lot in there.

Go early to see the caves before the bus tours! Arrived 9.15 and headed straight to the upper grotto via cable car. Phones and cameras are placed in lockers to avoid temptation, and being early we had the beautiful caves to ourselves. Lots of walking,...More

Great natural wonder, other than that I found Lebanon pretty boring and went 2x and never again. When you go that distance and spend lots you do not want to be handcuffed by cheapness and security problems.
