Jeita Grotto is a system of two interconnected caves that are famous for their stalactites and stalagmites. It is definitely one of Lebanon’s wonders!
The American missionary Reverend William Thomson entered the cave in 1836 and reached the river.
He fired a shot from his gun, and the explorer deduced that he discovered a massive cave thanks to the echoes.
Explorers from different countries visited the cave.
In 1858, Lebanese speleologists discovered the upper galleries which are located 60 meters above the lower ones.
The ride in the cable cars offers an amazing view!
People can also explore the river by taking a short cruise in a rowboat.
There’s always something to be explored!
Going to Jeita Grotto is an entertaining experience!
There’s a mini zoo there!
