“Very divine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013 via mobile

It was happy fridays so we were the only one inside, it is breathtaking , so amazing these rocks are, the bad thing is that they do not let you take any pictures even without the flash and i think they are exagerating it.

“Lime Stone Caves to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

The most intricately patterned, the largest, and the best preserved and run lime stone caves I have seen. There is a small train that you can take from one level to the next in case you get tired walking but the place is beautiful, green and cool, and the distances not much. inside the caves you have to walk. There are two levels so far of these incredibly beautiful caves which are still being opened up. There is an underground river at the lower level on which you can go for a boat ride. Spooky, Styx-like but the water is SO luminously green, silent and stunning that you soon forget Styx.

“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

The cave are magnificent and the split tour of both walking and boat are really a great set up.
The line up for the boat trip can though be quite long so expect some waiting time.

“If in Lebanon, must see it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

Two separate cave sections open with good lighting and oaths. We almost did not go as we have seen many caves but we were very glad we did. The sheer proportions of the caves make it worth it, gargantuan is the best word.
