The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres. In 1958, Lebanese speleologists discovered the upper galleries 60 metres above the lower cave with an access tunnel and a series of walkways. The upper galleries house the world's largest known stalactite. Jeita Grotto was one of top 14 finalists in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition.
