Jeita Grotto



The Lebanese love to show visitors this natural wonder, with its many stalagmites and stalactites in a series of caves. In summer, a boat ferries passengers across a subterranean lake, which is the source of Nahr al-Kalb (the Dog River). In the past, concerts for hundreds of listeners have been staged in the grotto, but most visitors will have to settle for a sound-and-light show. 12 mi/20 km north of Beirut.
