QADISHA VALLEY

The Qadisha Valley is a wild and remote river valley, dotted with waterfalls, grottoes, monasteries, and chapels. Qadisha means "holly" in syriac and is surrounded by the majesty of red-roofed houses and framed by snow-capped mountains. In the vicinity are a couple of places to visit. For example, the City of Becharre is the birth place of Khalil Gebran and the home of the Gebran Museum, the Qannoubin Monastery, the Qadisha Grotto, and the Cedars of Lebanon.
Not far from the top of the road between Becharre and the Cedars, a long path on the side of the cliff leads to this cave and waterfall. Here one can admire the small grotto with rushing waters, stalactites and stalagmites.
Water thunders down in the Grotto from snow-fed springs. The cave is lighted to show its limestone formations, but the rushing water and cool temperatures are the main attractions here. Below the cave is a powerful waterfall, especially full in spring months. Closed during the winter, in summer this is the site of an outdoor restaurant and cafe.
