If you visit Lebanon and specifically Jeita area near to Zouk Mosbeh area go ahead and visit this historical grotto...magnificent stalactites and stalagmites that will blow your mind...you have to see the upper grotto by feet and the lower grotto by a small boat...both are great...it's highly recommended

A magic natural grotto; Amazing and enchanting. worth watching the video to learn its history and the impact of the Lebanese war that damaged the surrounding.

As I was again in Lebanon I decided to visit the Jeita Grotto. Unfortunately you can not take pictures as it is a trip worth while. We started with the upper grotto which is approximately a 10 Min walk into the cave full of magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. The lower grotto can be visited by a short boat ride which...

the trip starts with an easy bus ride to a cable car that takes you up to the caves, and then the trip inside witch is truly spectacular, at the gate they take your camera(no pictures inside), and lock it in a box and give you the key. but I always carry a spare camera in my pocket(low light no...

It's a must see for any tourist because it shows the beautiful greenery of Lebanon really well. You get to ride a cable car to enter the limestone caves. Once you go in, you are amazed by the shapes and beauty of the stones, its naturally 22 degrees there so it was very comfortable to walk hours inside the cave... More

I was invited to the Grotto by local people for a discovery of the Lebanese culture and I can barely describe this incredible place, it's real master piece of mother nature. I will love to be locked in that place for 2 days and admire the beauty. I felt that for hundreds or thousand of years people were carving sculpture... More

The Jeita Grotto has two parts to it, the lower and upper grotto. The upper grotto is a walking trail through the cave, probably takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. It has steps so it's probably not wheelchair friendly. The views inside the cave are pretty good! The lower grotto is a short boat ride through the cave,... More
