Qalaat al-Kahf is a medieval castle 30km southeast of Margat. The castle sites on a ridge, and can only be reached by a steep narrow path.

Originally constructed in 1120 CE by Saif al-Mulk ibn Amrun, the castle was then sold to the Ismailis who controlled it until 1273 CE. It was the last Ismaili outpost to be conquered by the Mamluks. The castle was largely destroyed by the Ottomans in 1816 CE.

The castle would have been divided into 3-4 main sections and contained living quarters, storage areas and at least seven water cisterns.
