The Cave Of Three Bridges In Lebanon

The Baatara Gorge Waterfall is easily one of the most beautiful sights on earth. This incredible waterfall flows through the Three Bridge Chasm, an amazing vision on its own. Located in Tannourine, Lebanon, this natural feat has been a masterpiece in the making for millions of years.

After winter, when Mount Lebanon begins to melt, the ice turns to water and floods down into these cliffs, creating a waterfall that slowly carves away the limestone, year by year. Today this limestone is over 160-million years old, that means it was around back when the dinosaurs roamed earth. The age of these limestone cliffs, paired with all of the water damage they have received over the years, gives the walls of this waterfall so much character.
