Baatara Gorge Waterfall
Baatara Gorge Waterfall Promotion Video by Mental Scenes Production Chatine, Northern District, Lebanon. The Baatara Gorge Waterfall, also known as the “Three Bridges Chasm” is a unique wonder in Tannourine, Lebanon, magically carved out of ancient limestone by winter meltwater over a period of 160 million years!This unexpected waterfall drops 255 metres (837 ft.) into a cave and falls behind three natural
bridges, which raise one above the other and overhang the chasm descending into Mount Lebanon. It can only be seen during the months of March and April, when the snows are melting. The area is very popular for sport activities and you can find lots of people with climbing gear on the surrounding hills. It is also possible to climb to the various levels of the cavern with no special equipment. But you have to be very careful exploring it as the ground is slippery at some parts. Thanks to the dedication and efforts of Dr. Fadi El Chaer, founder of the Three Bridges Pothole Association, the site is now the center of attraction for thousands of enthusiasts, who escape with their families and friends to experience the magic and engage in multiple outdoor activities, including the 115 meters longest motorized zip line (Tyrolienne) in Lebanon.
