The Soreq Stalactite Cave In Israel

Soreq Cave, also known as Avshalom Cave or Stalactite Cave, is a cave on the western side of Mount Ye’ela, in the Judean hills of Israel. Discovered by accident in May 1968 while quarrying with explosives, it is 83m (272 ft) long, 60m (197 ft) wide, and 15m (49ft) high.

Like other dripstone caverns, Soreq Cave is teeming with stalactites and natural sculptures formed by hundreds of thousands of years of mineral-rich water drops slowly leaving behind a rock residue.
