Did you know you can rappel down 80m (262 feet) through a vertical ‘chimney’ made of salt, and reach the bottom at altitude 400m below sea level?
Amazing right?
And its in the Dead-Sea, Israel.
And the place is called ‘The Colonel’s Cave’.
One great adventure, and you don’t even need to have prior experience with rappelling.
This salt cave is a natural miracle of the world and to get a close acquaintance with the salty mountain you cannot find a better candidate.
The entrance to the cave is decorated with the 80-ty meters deep well which continues with the underground meandering channels. In every corner one can discover a fabulous wealth of the cave- thin threads of white stalactites, salty “snow” under feet, crystals in a form of electric outlets. Salty walls shaped as “wings” sound like bells and sparkle with myriads of lights like a precious stones.

Cave Colonel is the same temperature all year round (+25°С) which makes it a warm shelter from a cold winter winds and natural air-cooler in a hot Dead Sea summer.

This underground world is available only for a few, so the glory of “elite” is waiting for anyone who decides to visit Colonel.
