Keshet Cave

Keshet Cave Keshet CaveKeshet Cave is a large cave located in the Upper Galilee. It got its name because of the “keshet” shape (like a rainbow, or arch) the natural structure took after part of the cave collapsed. Archaeologists have found numerous artifacts in and around the cave that date back from the prehistoric Neolithic period to the Chalcolithic period. This area was an ideal location for prehistoric man because there was shelter, as well as water and game provided by the nearby creek. Pottery was also found that dates back to the period when the Israelites invaded Canaan, as well as to the Persian period. Above the cave are the ruins of the Early Bronze period city Tel Ademet, which stood until the Ottoman period. Today, Keshet Cave is an optimal place for rappelling.
