Kariz-e-Kish

Covered by the city tour, it is a beautiful place to visit. Was quite hot in the summer but must be cool in other times.

There is also a restaurant located inside. Unfortunately we did our visit in the early afternoon and it was closed. But it is really place to stay, to relax and to get impressed... More

The best time to visit Kish and its attractions is during nowrouz vacation since the weather is mild. These kariz underground tunnels is recommended to be visited the cost is about 7 or 8 $ per person. Do not miss photographing in unique locations.

Hydraulic (water) systems in an ancient underground (kish island).about 16 m below the coral island, a series of aqua tunnels near the wells snake through the earth for more than 5 miles. As the tunnels cut below the world, the Kish kariz (Qanat) begins to look more like a massive underground city its like metro tunnels.
