The Soreq Cave also known as Avshalom’s Caves or the Stalactite Caves is a nature reserve and part of the National Parks Authority. It is an example of “Natural Beauty”. Located between Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh, the caves are a great place to spend a morning or an afternoon with your family.
The beautiful formations are made from years of dripping water and you must make sure to wear good shoes with traction because it can get quite slippery. There are guard rails throughout and the path is lit. Humidity in the cave is between 92%-100%. The cave is 82 meters long and 62 meters wide. Kids find the cave “magical” and it is a very memorable experience.
