Bet Stalactite Cave We've ever seen
Nov. 2019
We've been to a lot of these types of caves all over the world, but this one is the best by far! It's not so much the size of the cave, although it's impressive, it's that it's basically all one huge open room, with many many different types of formations all in the same place, sometimes right next to each other. The different color lights are a little overdone in places, and it can get very crowded with school groups, but it's definitely worth coming here if you're on the way to/from Jerusalem.

Beautiful cave and great for photographers
Mar. 2020
I live in Israel and there are several places in the center of the country which are very unique. A friend was visiting and we are both avid amature photographers. These stalactite caves were great for us to practice. Although you maust enter the caves with a group, there is no need for you to stay with the group. Minor comment - on Saturday the tours are only in Hebrew but this is no problem since the introductury movie has subtitles.

Now back to the photography. Once we entered the cave and started taking pictures there was no pressure for us to stay with the group. We stood at many sites for as long as we wanted. Groups came and passed us, no problem. The only thing that bothers me is that we did not bring a tripod. I do not know if I would have been prevented from using one. If you are a photographer and go to the caves I suggest you bring one with you.

How long should you stay in the cave? Suggested time is one hour but it depends on how avid a photographer you.

Small But Good

This cave system is a little bit out of the way but we passed it on our way back from Bethlehem and we decided to give it a look. We were not disappointed!

We showed up at just the right time (3pm) to get the English tour and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the cave.

If your in the area, go see it!

Very easy to get to by car.it was packed but they did a very good job of staggering the people entering .Never felt rushed or overwhelmed by the masses.Bring food and drink .You can picnic by the car or at a picnic table on the road .Very beautiful area.

This is a relatively small cave but with a lot to see. English speaking guides are available. There are malls nearby with places to eat. Other attractions are nearby as well

Short but sweet

Great site. There are a lot of stairs necessary to get to the mouth of the cave, otherwise outstanding.

A magic cave
Jul. 2019 • Family
In the middle of nowhere, at the end of a road that leads only to this magnificent place - there is an amazing cave, which looks like you are entering a fairy tale.
We've join an organized our which started with a short movie, and a nice lady guided us to the cave which was very impressive.
