Soreq Avshalom Cave, located in Israel's Judean Mountains, was discovered in the 1960s. Like other caves in the region, it's now a popular tourist spot, drawing people from across the world with its enchanting, waterworn shapes. Some of its stalactites are four yards long and more than 300,000 years old. They often meet with stalagmites to form stone pillars, giving this spot a regal look, like a glimpse into Atlantis.
