To the Baatara waterfall

Let’s go to Lebanon this morning to discover the Baatara waterfall !
Also called the three bridge chasm, the chasm is about 250m deep and made of 160-million-year-old limestone from the Jurassic period. You can see two natural bridges around one third of the total height and the other one on two thirds of it. Third bridge appears when you stand on the other side of the chasm.

Already very impressive by itself the chasm gets its’ reputation from the 90m waterfall that appears during spring and summer when the snow melts on mount Lebanon. Viewing the water passing behind the three bridges really is amazing.
Fun fact : the chasm was reported by French bio-speleologist Henri Coiffait in 1952 !
