Luzit Caves

September 13th 2010

The Luzit Caves are a large system of caves connected by many tunnels enabling individuals to hike out to the beautiful Mitzpe Masua. The Luzit Caves are made up of bell caves which were former quarries. A majority of the caves found in this location were created throughout the Roman, Byzantine, and Muslim periods dating from the 3rd century to the 10th century CE. Visitors are welcomed to go rappelling into the caves. The Luzit Caves are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for visitors who wish to do some hiking and camping. If you chose to hike the Luzit Caves at ground level, caution is given due to the increased number of open pits. All visitors are urged to remain on the marked trails throughout their expedition.
