     Considered as one of the best caves in the world, the Jeita Grotto is a compound of crystallized caves in Lebanon located 20 km north of Beirut in the Valley of Nahr al-Kalb (Dog River). This
grotto is made up of two limestone caves, upper galleries and a lower cave through which a 6230 m long river runs. Geologically, the caves provide a tunnel or escape route for the underground river. In this cave and galleries, the action of water in the limestone has created cathedral-like vaults full of various sizes, colors and shapes of stalactites and stalagmites, majestic curtains and fantastic rock formations. The total length of the cave is more than 9000 m and there is one among the biggest stalactites in the world hanging 8,20 m. The grotto accommodates a huge hall with a distance of 108 m from the ceiling till the water level.
The Jeita Grottoes underwent many name changes, from the Grottoes of Nahr el Kalb (means the Dog River), Djaita, Jehita, and finally Jeita. The name change from caves or Grottoes of Nahr El-Kalb to Jeita Grottoes happened in 1927 when newspapers widely used the name “Jeita Grottoes”. Naher el Kalb is the name of the river that runs through Jeita Grottoes but the entrance to the cave is located in the town of Jeita which means “roaring water” in Aramaic. The eyes of the world were upon Lebanon’s Jeita Grotto when it had been selected as a top 28 finalist in the ongoing Global Campaign to declare the New Seven Wonders of Nature 2011. We had the chance to reveal to the world the true wealth, heritage, and beauty of Lebanon. Making this site a natural wonder makes all the difference, as it will help to preserve it for generations to come and further acknowledging it as an Icon for World Tourism. Everyone’s continuous support is vital for Jeita’s Grotto to be a part of history!!
