Me'arat Keshet (Keshet Cave, or cave of the arch)

Why is this place called a cave? As this is actually a huge rock arch hanging between heaven and earth, above the landscape of the Western Galilee region, high up on Ramat Admit (Admit Heights or mountain ridge). Although it is still impressive on second, third and even forth visit, but where is the cave here? Apparently this arch is only what remains from the ceiling of a cave which has collapsed a long time ago. And it is this remnant that is the best natural attraction in the area, especially due to the observation point overlooking the landscape around it which it provides, making it almost like flying a light aircraft. And yes, it is as scary as it sounds, but also great fun. The views include the ridge of Rosh HaNikra, the Haifa Bay, the Carmel, Yehi'am Fortress, Mount Meron, and more. In order to make the experience complete, it is very much recommended to start with the path which leaves from the "Khenyonof” (meaning: view park) and come back to it through the wilder and rockier "Amir Meital” trail. Arrival through road number 8993.
