Interesting side stop

I'll be honest--I wasn't impressed with the Grotto (probably because I've seen much larger ones in the U.S.), but if you've never seen underground caverns, it's a nice stop... read more

I'll be honest--I wasn't impressed with the Grotto (probably because I've seen much larger ones in the U.S.), but if you've never seen underground caverns, it's a nice stop especially for kids. The entrance is a door under the Grotto sign right on the road. You are immediately led down a dark winding stairwell into the ground. A young guy... More

We went to Shouf to visit "Beit el Din" and "deir el amar" and came across this hidden gem on the way. Similar to Jeita grotto but much smaller, however it's a nice natural grotto to visit and see the formations in rocks made by natural water filtering

We have visited this "grotto" as was suggested by our driver: I bet "grotto" owners rely on local guides bringing tourists to them in exchange for some kickback. This is not grotto: entire exposition is one lengthy underground man-made plastered cave... Majority of stalactites and stalagmites are FAKE, they are made from the same plaster walls are covered with. It... More

A big group of friends were traveling around Lebanon and our van drivers decided to stop at Kfarhim Grotto so that we could take a look. We were disappointed that we hadn't seen Jeita Grotto yet, so we thought this was better than nothing. I could immediately tell that this grotto, apparently formed 4 million years ago, was nothing but... More

I had a great time, it was well worth it and I recommend it to anyone going to Lebanon. It was similar to Jeita grotto but in a smaller size , with wider space of breathing , no air pressure but narrow vestibules.

It's a shame! The really beautiful stalactites and stalagmites have basically been destroyed. Many broke supposely as a result of the construction of the path for the tourists. But most of all we were shoked that waste parts of the cave seem to be painted with kind of a cement, stalactites and stalagmites are prepared for the visitors... often the... More
