Must visit. Start with the upper grotto first to truly admire the lower one. Also, instead of taking the cable car, you can take the scenic walk to the grottos ( the lower and the upper ), its around a 7 minute walk.

Jeita grotto has upper and lower grottos. The upper one is huge and has very big shape aged thousands of year. While the lower part has water and it is only discovered by small boat. For sure it worth visiting and enjoying this nature wonder.

Google snow at the Cedars of Lebanon and Cedars ski resort guide. Also, weather in Faraya Lebanon, during your stay.

Hi sorry for the delay. I would say no problem for kids. There are rails and steps all throughout the cave.
