Hand carved houses in a village which can be a world wonder for itself . The thing is that you can get thousands of different views just by walking through alleys which sometimes can be breathtaking.

There are three similar structure places in the world, one in the USA, the other one in Turkey & third one in Iran. Kandovan is the only one among others which has local residents. Highly recommended.

Lovely place to visit. We spent half a day there (mostly climbing and descending though) but it was worth the experience I've never had. You can ask villagers to see inside their house and buy local goods like honey, dried fruit, etc.

Just one hour driving from Tabriz to Kandovan. Very charming place. We stayed one night at the hotel and it was enough to visit everywhere in this beautiful city. Try Dizi at the restaurant near the small lake. You can buy lots of fresh spice...More
