Stalactite Cave Nature Reserve
The descent into the cave is a visit to a magical fairy-tale world of stone statues created by Mother Nature – stalactites and stalagmites in a multitude of shapes that stimulate the imagination of both young and old, providing a spectacular experience.
- Outside Observation Area – east/west view, to the city of Bet Shemesh and the active quarries. The cave was discovered thanks to the work of these quarries.
- Inside Observation Area – view of the vast cavern, the shapes of stalactites and stalagmites and the special artificial lighting.
- Spectacular Stalactite and Stalagmite Shapes, among them the “grandfather” of the cave, the “elephant ears” column, the sculptures garden and the “macaroni field”.
The Reserve established in 1975 encompasses an extensive natural woodland area and the largest and most beautiful stalactites-stalagmites cave in Israel!
