Israeli researchers have discovered the world’s longest salt cave called Malham in Mount Sodom, overlooking the Dead Sea.


  • The cave named Malham, stretching over 10 kilometres (6.25 miles), runs through Mount Sodom, Israel's largest mountain, and spills out to the southwest corner of the adjacent Dead Sea. 

  • Pale salt stalactites hang from the ceilings, and some of the walls sparkle with salt crystals. 

  • Earlier, N3 cave in Iran's Qeshm island was widely recognised as the world's longest salt cave.
