Driving down to the caves one wonders if this is really going to be worthwhile as the surrounds give nothing away of what awaits the traveler. The caves are absolutely magnificent and breathtaking, wish there were private tours to explore more! This was my second time round and I will not pass on the chance to go again.

I can't say a thing... words can't describe the experience. Just visit and you will know as it is a master piece of nature tucked inside the Lebanese mountains. Very close to Beirut.

A truly hidden gem. It's a perfect nature made carven, amazing to see how things change/ build up over time and how thousand if not millions little drops of water can create an amazing piece of art. This is a must see in Lebanon. A day to remember and a day to enjoy
