Date of Announcement: 1992
Area: 12 km 2
Type: Geological protected area and national heritage
Distance from Cairo: 200 km

The protected area contains geological formations known as stalactites
and stalgmites in a perfect beautiful formed over millions of years,
where the formation dates back to the era of Middle Eocene about 60
million years by a leakage of aqueous solutions of calcium carbonate
saturated through the roof of the cave and then evaporated, leaving the
mineral salts that accumulated in the form of deposits of stalactites
and stalgmites, cave extends a distance of about 700 m, breadth about
15 m and depth is about 15 m and the importance of this cave is due to
the scarcity of these natural formations in the world and shed light on
the ancient climate conditions in that region and the era of
composition. Additionally, it allows researchers to conduct detailed
studies compared in terms of the different nature of the environmental
conditions that prevailed in the old age Eocene East 0
Located in the province of Beni Suef, about 70 kilometers southeast of
the city built Sopf is characterized by the presence of geological
formations known as stalactites and Balsed of alabaster formed over
millions of years, due to age about 60 million years ago, the cave is
important to the scarcity of such natural formations as it is of great
importance for researchers .
