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.

Replies very fast re inquiries. The staff are friendly and very helpful. From the lighting designer of the cave (which kind of gave us a tour), to the lady at the information center which helped us in getting a taxi back home, the cave is a definite must-see. It'll leave you awestruck at the beauty and immensity of God's handiwork. So amazing!!!
MESMERIZING ENCHANTING. Its my first time seeing limestone caves. This picture was taken secretly (becoz no camera is allowed) so it doesn't do much justice but I was in awe from beginning till the end. The mini boat ride was lovely. Would definitely go again!
