    Stop At: Jeita Grotto, 20 km North of Beirut, Jitta Lebanon

    The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres. The caves are situated in the Nahr al-Kalb valley within the locality of Jeita, 18 kilometres 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.

    In 1958, Lebanese speleologists discovered the upper galleries 60 metres above the lower cave which have been accommodated with an access tunnel and a series of walkways to enable tourists safe access without disturbing the natural landscape. The upper galleries house the world's largest known stalactite. The galleries are composed of a series of chambers the largest of which peaks at a height of 12 metres.

    Aside from being a Lebanese national symbol and a top tourist destination, the Jeita grotto plays an important social, economic and cultural role in the country. It was one of top 14 finalists in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Telefrique Harisa, Kesrouane, Lebanon

    One of Lebanon’s oldest and most visited tourist attractions, the gondolas of the Teleferique aerial cableway are a trip down memory lane, from a pioneering venture in 1965 to a beautifully preserved modern-day attraction offering breathtaking views of the bay of Jounieh and the surrounding city, the Teleferique is an impressive testimony to time gone by, one meter at a time.

    The Teleferique offers a most exclusive experience for Lebanese and non-Lebanese visitors, families or groups, from all walks of life capitalizing on its unique environment, combining natural, familial, and spiritual values at the doorstep of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lebanon.
