In its description of the place, The Guardian wrote: “The Cave of Three Bridges near Tannourine village (a 90-minute drive from Beirut) is a primordial wonder. A vertical shaft of icy melt water drops 250 meters through a limestone cave. Over the centuries the water has carved three limestone arcs across the main chamber at the end of a dizzyingly steep gorge. The curved nature of the erosion and abundance of greenery give the impression of an imagined landscape, a sublime rendering of the natural world. The Baatara Gorge can be accessed by trail from the village of Mgharet al-Ghaouaghir and offers an insight into the incredible geology of this tiny, troubled country.”

 

The list also included places like Cola de Caballo in Pyrenees, Spain; Aquafraggia Falls in Lombardy, Italy; Grawa, Austria; Svartifoss, Iceland; Glen Maye, Isle of Man and other waterfalls from different continents.
