Caves With The Longest Stalactite


We first thought there was no race to the moon in the stalactite class, but it is. So here are some of the longest stalactites of the world.


 Jeita Cavern, Lebanon The longest stalactite of the World, located in the White Chamber, 8.2m long.
 Doolin Cave or Pol-an-Ionain, Co. Clare, Ireland. Hosts the longest stalactite in the world according to old editions of the Guinness Book of World Records. Given length differs, depending on the source, between 11m and 6.2m. 6.54m seems to be the real value. But their claim for the "longest stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere" is weird.
 Kartchner Caverns State Park, USA Soda straw stalactite measuring 0.6cm wide and 6.4m long, making it the third-longest stalactite in the world.
 OFD (Ogof Ffynnon Ddu), Wales, Great Britain Contains the longest stalactite of mainland Britain, the Trident, which is about 5m long.
 a wild cave in Polis Chrysochous region, Cyprus. A cave was found with stalactites and stalagmites, with the longest stalactite measuring 15 meters.
