one of the oldest cypress tree in the world
Sep 2019
This is the 3rd oldest tree in world, having about 4500 years old. It will be a nice experience to visit this tree en your route to Yazd (from Shiraz).
there is also a good cafe near this tree.

Definitely should be on everyone's bucket list

I had wanted to visit the tree for a long time, and we made it there two weeks ago. It is a grand tree, it is a marvel to see, and to cherish. We were in Abarkooh for 20 hours and went to see it 3 times. It is majestic and thankfully it is protected so you can't go very close. It dwarfs everything and is truly beautiful and thought provoking.

A Luxiary City

I’m wondering if the age of this huge and the magnificent tree is over 6000 or 7000 years Old due to its thick trunk that it has. Anyways they say that recently scientists from Japan and Russia has estimated it around 8000 years. Abarkuh belonged to Shiraz province a while ago, but now it is from Yazd. I’m proud that Iran has such a monument that every Iranian, can say I’m Iranian around the globe. It's a Glory for this Country!

A cypress planted by Zoroaster himself ...
Nov 2018 • Friends
On your way from Shiraz to Yazd, a quick stop in Abarkuh is highly recommended. There you'll find the famous "Cypress of Abarkuh", whose age is estimated between 4000 and 5000 years and may be one of the oldest living trees in the whole world! Its height is about 25m and its perimeter, at the trunk, is around 11,5m. The legend says that Zoroaster, the Iranian prophet and spiritual leader, planted himself the ancient tree. Amazing legends about this Iranian protected national natural monument ... "Coffee Art Gallery" is located right under the shadows of the iconic "Cypress of Abarkuh", serving freshly brewed coffee, home baked cakes and traditional Iranian souvenirs. One last remark: never visit the "Cypress of Abarkuh" after sunset, as you'll see almost nothing. Enjoy!

a magnificent tree
Jan 2019
I had heard about this oldest tree in Iran and one of the oldest trees in the world, the magnificent 4000 year old Cypress for many years. I finally got to visit it today and found it as beautiful as I had imagined. While visiting the Cypress, you may wish to have a cup of tea or coffee at the arts cafe run by Masoud.

It would be a good choice to stop in Abarkuh city on your way from Yazd to Shiraz to visit the majestic, 25-meter "Abarkuh Cypress Tree", which has been living for over 4 millennia. Really beautiful to take pictures, also the ticket is cheap.

Cafe at Abarkuh, Iran - "Cofee Art Gallery" - delightful place for espresso, or cappuccino just in front of cypress tree
Apr 2018 • Friends
Driving through the Zagros mountains on your way to Shiraz, you can stop at the village of ABAKUH, and enjoy a freshly brewed cup of cappuccino or expresso for about 150,000 rials or $1.50 US.
The owners Masoudak and Rami are so hospitable that you just might stay 'yes' for another cup of their excellent coffee! Their cafe is located close to the 4500 cypress tree; although the cafe is small, there are some outdoor seats, also.

my april visit
Apr 2018 • Business
before visiting this beautiful historic city I had no idea about Abarkooh . On my way from Shiraz to Yazd I had a chance to stop by and visit the Ancient Cedar which really had a positive ambiance , nice pomegranate gardens nearby & historical maze shape alleys & houses . If you go there , do not miss the traditional restaurants in the surroundings with their local delicious stews .
