Etymology:Syriac origin, "chotin", meaning "drink"
At the top of the large village of Tannourine, stands Chatine, a village lost in a lush nature with a breathtaking view of the entire valley beneath it. This pleasant little village is distinguished by a charming place surrounded by greenery and houses buried under abundant vegetation. However, its major attraction is the Balaa gorge sinkhole which is a marvel of nature. Discovered in 1952, this sinkhole dug in the Upper Jurassic limestone has bridge-shaped formations and a 90-m-high waterfall. Chatine is a village that offers both a perspective of serenity and adventure.
