Encircled by the Manor Mountain on the East, Namer Stream on the West, the Betzet Stream Reserve on the South and the Lebanese border in the North, lays the beautiful Adamit Park, encompassing, amongst others, a natural site that is especially identified with the landscape of this area: the Keshet (arch) Cave. This, in fact, is a huge recess in which the greater part of the ceiling collapsed, and all that remains is the portal arch. People standing on the arch feel for a moment as if they are hanging between heaven and earth. It is no wonder that the place has become a shrine for repelling enthusiast of all kinds. Due to its size, the Keshet cave is seen from afar and enables those standing on its edge to sense nature’s power in all its’ glory as if from a bird’s eye view.
However, not only repelling enthusiast can enjoy this wonder. Indeed, not only regular travelers, as well: thanks to extensive rehabilitation underway at the Adamit Park (4,000 Dunam of nature and landscapes including the ruins of an ancient village) a proper road had been paved for the disabled from the parking lot to the mouth of the cave. A perfect path, without limits, barriers, sections to be finished later-on or future accessibility plans. It is entirely ready for use, here and now. This superb path, starting at the spacious restrooms facility, is at the disposal of people in wheelchairs, as well as baby carriages, the elderly population and anyone who has difficulty walking in nature and who will be glad to return from a real trip with clean shoes. The road to happiness.
The Keshet cave may be approached by three footpaths: the first beginning from a point in the road climbing up towards the park. The sign pointing to its beginning is noticeable at the roadside. Walking time to the cave: about fifteen minutes.
The second trail (named after Amir Mei-Tal), begins at the bottom parking of Adamit Park, adjacent to the exit of the paved pathway accessible to the disabled. Walking time to the cave in each one of the paths is about ten minutes.
The paved pathway accessible to the disabled leading to the Keshet cave effectively provides all the advantages of a paved pathway, without alienating the environment.
Visitors who choose to go down to the cave should pay attention to their children, and make sure they are not running ahead. The comfortable pathway calls for it, and the cliff always appears sooner than expected. You can do it. It’s not like ‘arching’ over backwards.
