KafarKila (Arabic: كفركلا , also, Kfarkila, Kfarkela, Kafarkela) is a small village in Southern Lebanon.

Kafarkila name comes from 'Kfar' (Village) and 'Kila' (Bride) meaning the Bride Village. The total population of the village is about 14,500. The occupants' number increases dramatically during summer. Its altitude is around 700 m from sea level.[1] Kafarkila is well known for its high quality olive oil, grapes, and bee honey in addition to many other farming activities.

Many developments are currently taking place due to the efforts and the determinism of the municipality side by side with the people in order to mitigate the problems that accumulated over the years from central government indifference, civil war, occupation and border wars.
