Kandavan
 

Kandavan is one of the most amazing rock villages in Iran and the world and one of the sights of East Azarbaijan province, which is located in the heart of Kaleh Qandi rocks and is also known as Kaleh Qandi village. This historic summer village is located at the foot of the slopes of the Sahand volcanic mountain and next to the Kandavan river. The mountainous nature of the area has created streams on the surface of the sloping areas that move towards the valley and form the primary branches of this river. There are beautiful green pastures around this village that attract many nomads. The entire east of the valley is also covered with mountain willow, walnut, elm and almond trees.

 

The distinguishing feature of Kandavan is its rock architecture and village houses, which were created through the digging of sugar-headed stones known as Karan.
The distinctive feature of Kandavan is its rock architecture and village houses, which were created by digging the sugar-headed stones known as Karan. These Kale Ghandi rocks were created as a result of the volcanic interactions of Sahand Mountains. Volcanic molten masses and lava have been formed by wind, snow and rain over many thousands of years and turned into the form of Karan, and such a wonderful sight has been created in one of the most pleasant parts of Iran.
Kandavan village has various eco-tourist accommodations where you can have fun and stay.

 

 

 

The deserts of Iran

The deserts of Iran are known as one of the attractive regions of Iran. For example, we can mention Dasht Kavir and Dasht Lut. In these deserts, you can experience off-road riding, watching the starry sky of the desert, sunbathing, etc. Of course, it should be mentioned that the deserts of Iran also have lakes and flora and fauna that provide a great experience for tourists.
Lut desert is located in the southeast of Iran and carries the title of the most pristine spot in Iran. "Lot" in the Balochi language, which is considered to be one of the languages ​​of northwestern Iran, means bare, without water and grass, thirsty and empty of everything, and is on par with the word "Lat" which, with a little exaggeration, describes the characteristics of desert areas. The major part of this great desert is sand and sand and other parts have desert geography; Therefore, it is possible to differentiate between the two terms desert and desert and reconsider using them interchangeably.

 

Deserts are areas where the annual rainfall usually does not reach 50 mm and has very poor vegetation; But the desert is said to be clay lands that have a very high salt content and are known as salt marshes. Most of the deserts, the time of their formation goes back to the third geological period, have included ancient lakes, and now the salt left behind from their evaporation in distant years prevents the growth of any plants in these areas. Therefore, scientists and geologists believe that the vast region of southeastern Iran should be introduced as Lut Desert; Because the term Lut Desert refers to only a part of this vast desert.

 

Iran has big wars with different vegetation in the north, south and west of Iran.
For example, we can mention the forests around the Caspian Sea and Arsbaran forest in the northwest and the forests of Gilangarb, etc., and we will introduce an example of these forests.
 

 

 

Arsbaran forests

 
Arasbaran forests, with an area of ​​nearly 130 thousand hectares, are located near the Aras river in the northern part of the beautiful province of East Azerbaijan. It is safe to say that Arsbaran is considered one of the most beautiful areas in the entire north of Iran. Tabriz is the closest city center to Arsbaran forests, which is not far from this city.
The green forests of Arsbaran have occupied large parts of the northwestern region of Iran and have given a unique beauty to the province of East Azarbaijan.
The world organization UNESCO has introduced Arsbaran as a biosphere reserve with an area of ​​about 12,000 km.
The climate of Arsbaran forest is influenced by the Mediterranean climate, and in addition, it is located within the radius of the Caspian and Caucasian climates.
 

 

The sea and lakes of Iran

 

 

Lakes of Iran

Due to its special geological situation, Iran has many lakes. Our country is located in a hot and dry region, and rainfall varies throughout the year. The amount of water in some Iranian lakes depends on the amount of rainfall (seasonal) and some of them will be regardless of the amount of rainfall (permanent).

 

 

 

Qom salt lake (Sultan pool)

Hoz Sultan or Qom salt lake, which is located in the north of the city and Qom province. The salinity and salts of this lake are very high, which has turned it into a salt lake.
 

 

 

Swamp or cow lake

This lake is located in Fars province and southeast of Isfahan province, where Zayandeh River flows into it. This lake, which is considered as one of Iran's seasonal lakes, has revived again in these rainy years, thank God.
 

 

 

 Bakhtegan Lake

Another seasonal lake in Iran is Bakhtegan Lake, Fars. Niriz or Bakhtegan is the name of a lake in Fars province and Niriz city, which is located in the east of Shiraz city.
 

 

 

Jazmurian Lake

A lake has appeared between Kerman and Baluchistan province, the beautiful name of Jazmurian, which is fed by Halil River and other seasonal rivers. This lake, which is part of Iran's seasonal lakes, is alive throughout the year in these rainy years, thank God.
 

 

 

Bakhtegan and Tashk lakes

Bakhtegan, Fars province, is one of the most important permanent lakes in Iran and the fourth wetland in Iran.
 

 

 

 Permanent lakes of Iran

This title applies to lakes, which are full of water throughout the year and the amount of water does not vary much.
 

 

 

Lake Urmia

The biggest permanent internal lake of Iran is Lake Urmia. This lake is located between the two provinces of West Azerbaijan and East Azerbaijan. As the largest saltwater lake in the Middle East, Lake Urmia has been ranked as the sixth largest saltwater lake in the world. This lake is the most important lake in Iran. Of course, unfortunately, in recent years, despite the natural and management problems in the country, we have witnessed the seasonality of this lake at some points of time.
