Discover The most stunning natural wonders of the world. Jeita Grotto is one of the world most beautiful cavern and was nominated for the seven world wonder.
The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres (5. 6 mi). The caves are situated in the Nahr al-Kalb valley within the locality of Jeita, 18 kilometres (11 mi) north of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Though inhabited in prehistoric times, the lower cave was not rediscovered until 1836 by Reverend William Thomson; it can only be visited by boat since it channels an underground river that provides fresh drinking water to more than a million Lebanese.
Also, visit Harissa with virgin Mary statue, 600 meters above sea level with a wonderful panoramic view covering the bay of Jounieh.
