Avshalom Cave

Hidden within the Judean Hills, a positively stunning cave stretches over 50,000 square feet. The massive, 300,000-year-old stalactites and stalagmites of Avshalom Cave make it one of Israel's must-see natural phenomena.

The psychedelic lighting is a bonus to visitors, though it wasn't just installed for looks – it controls the growth of algae within the cave.
