Baloo Balaa or Natural Sinkhole is very famous for its 250 meters deep natural sink-hole that has been carved by water 160 million years ago! A magnificent waterfall can be observed during winter and spring with water vapors rising up to the surface.

The importance of Baloo Balaa has spread beyond the Lebanese borders. Baloo Balaa is a natural pothole with three separate natural bridges inside it. This natural beauty is a must to see.

Douma is also named "Douma El Hadid" (Douma of Iron or Iron-Douma) due to the abundance of iron found it its soil and the superior craftsmanship of its blacksmiths.

The arming industry established under Ibrahimn Basha's regime encouraged many people from Showeir to come and settle in Douma since opportunities of work were plentiful at the time
