Fantastic rock formations and stalactites grow underground in Jeita Grotto, a set of natural underground caves visitors can explore on foot and by boat. Formed over thousands of years of dissolution of the limestone layer, the caves were discovered in the late 19th century. Evidence of prehistoric, early Bronze Age use permeates the site, which includes a lower chamber filled with a naturally occurring lake which visitors traverse on small guided rowboats, and an upper dry chamber linked by walkways. Photography isn't permitted within the grottos, but you can stash your cameras and backpacks in the lockers available near the entrance.

  • It's very impressive. I went there with my three children and it was a unique experience. it's well organized. 
  • Probably this is the most impressive natural phenomena. Definitely worth a visit. Of the huge downsides-it cannot be fotošrafirovat′. With guards or "zapretitelej to photograph" very much and they straight behind you. The situation becomes even sadder when the output you see on sale postcards hideous quality.

  • It has two caves; one that is a walk through, and another by boat. Both experiences were breath taking. It's a masterpiece of art in nature.
  • A landmark in tourism must see. Make sure u visit during spring when the snow melt fills the cave with water. During summer peak times, water may recede and ruin the experience
  • The most beautiful cave I have ever seen.
  • This was one of the best experiences of my life. It is unbelievable to think such a place exists naturally. This is a mandatory destination for anyone that comes to visit Lebanon. There's a beautiful guided walk along the grotto and an even more magical boat tour. You will not be disappointed!
  • This place was amazing where you can find all these grotto stone that we learn about them during school. A very organized tour and a very fun trip can be made here to tourist.
