I had a great time, it was well worth it and I recommend it to anyone going to Lebanon.
It was similar to Jeita grotto but in a smaller size , with wider space of breathing , no air pressure but narrow vestibules.

It's a shame! The really beautiful stalactites and stalagmites have basically been destroyed. Many broke supposely as a result of the construction of the path for the tourists. But most of all we were shoked that waste parts of the cave seem to be painted with kind of a cement, stalactites and stalagmites are prepared for the visitors... often the wrong way around. We don't know about the reason for this preparation - for us it just seemed a really foolish what they have done with the grotto. In our opinion it is a shame they are presenting the grotto as a "heritage" while they have actually destroyed it! Would be interesting to know what geologists say about that trhasy preparation for tourism. Go to Jeita Grotto instead. Jeita is just impressive!

As for a Kfarhim, this Grotto is considered a very nice place to visit.
As a citizen of this area I advice all visitors to pay a visit to this Grotto
It's worth the visit.

Visited Kfarhim Grotto in 2010. After a full day in Saida (Sidon in English), I decided to go uphill at some point of the seaside road and ended up passing by the entrance of the grotto. So why not check it out? What a great experience, in that tha site is very well preserved and just beautiful. The entrance fee is US$ 10 (guided tour included, in Arabic though...). Moreover, on your way up there is this great view of the mountains of the Chouf region. Tip: go to the grotto in a occasion that you are also visiting some other place nearby, like Beit el Dine.
