Grottes de Han – 100 pieces


SKU: ZEMX2018-2 Category: Tags: ,

The Caves of Han-sur-Lesse (in French: Grottes de Han-sur-Lesse or simply Grottes de Han) are a major Belgian tourist attraction (around 250-300,000 visitors per year) located on the outskirts of the village of Han-sur-Lesse.

The caves are the result of the underground erosion of a limestone hill by the river Lesse. For most of its length, it is a meandering river. Not far from Han-sur-Lesse, it abruptly plunges into a sinkhole known as the gouffre de Belvaux (English: Belvaux abyss), forcing its way under the hill over a distance of over 1 kilometer (1⁄2 mi) as the crow flies before streaming through the cave complex known as the Grottes de Han.
