The Israeli guards that we saw on duty were very kind, but resolute. The border is not an active border, with people entering and leaving Israel. You can freely take pictures. It is part of the Rosh Hanikra experience. No cot to go to the border.

The grottoes are located underneath border control, so you won't be able to miss this if you're doing that. You don't need to go out of your way to see it.

I guess what's exciting about being here is that you're at the border of 2 countries that have a difficult history. I mean if you stand on the border of 2 countries in Europe, it's barely noticeable and it isn't a big deal, so I presume that's what makes the difference at this border.

There is a great sign (see pic) indicating you are on the border and there is a closed off gate (see pic) patrolled by Israeli soldiers who are really friendly, happy to chat to tourists as long as it doesn't interfere with their duties. If you're at the grottos then the sign is a 5 minute walk from there, but if you're making a specific trip to visit just here, I wouldn't make the effort.

Out to sea there is an Israeli patrol boat permanently placed to ensure the safety of the border (see pic).

it is interesting to see the fence with Lebanon, this is the only pass into Lebanon, but not open to tourists or public, you can see the border from the Israeli Side...just a security installation.

Its a gate that separates two countries that cannot visit each other!!! Nothing much to see other than you realize how beautiful the area is and what a shame it has to be cut off to the public. The soldiers guarding the gate are friendly, and you get to see a peak into Lebanon. If you have time then by all means go, but if you are limited with time, you can skip this.

I really don't know what did we expected when we went to the border, but this is nothing special, it is just a short view to Lebanon.

Just wondering to mark as done and visited on the way. Not really something with your time, unless you want to brag you've seen into Lebanon.

OK, it isn't really that interesting. Just a closed border gate. But you do get to peek through and see Lebanon on the other side.

We took pictures here, and our guide convinced some soldiers to come out and be photographed by our group...interesting to see the young Israeli soldiers next to the "soft" American tourists...

Don't know why our tour guide insisted on coming here. On the way you can see red sign about "Mine Alerts" We get to the end of the road and she pointed out how the military army were in the buildings atop the mountain and to the right she pointed out the wall between the countries. It was very eyry and I didn't feel comfortable at all.
