Rosh Hanikra (Hebrew: “Head of the Grotto”), is a site with a special geological formation located at the very northern western corner of Israel, at the border crossing point into Lebanon.
The cavernous tunnels formed by sea action on the soft chalk rock are reached by a short cable car ride, which is claimed to be the steepest cable car in the world (gradient of 60 degrees).
The site also features section of the Cairo-Istanbul rail road which functioned between 1942 to 1948.
