The Baatara gorge sinkhole is a waterfall in the Tannourine, Lebanon near Balaa. The waterfall drops 255 metres into the Baatara Pothole, a cave of Jurassic limestone located on the Lebanon Mountain

Nice drive up the mountains, very quiet off season. After the summer no water to feed the fall. Nice surrounding mountains.
