    This place is so magical and absolutely amazing! It is a must see if you go to Qeshm. Make sure you wear cool and comfortable clothes as there is a bit of a walk and bring a hat as you can burn in the sun.

    you must walk in the river, so bring suitable shoes and extra dress with yourself.
    مسیر پیاده روی رودخانه طولانی هست و باید کفش مناسب برای راه رفتن داخل آب و لباس اضافی به همراه داشته باشید.

    Reached the canyon with an off road from its left side. Depending on the time of the year, you will find the canyon filled with water or dry, and you can either admire it from its top or descend and walk among its walls- in both cases it’s long, high and impressive. At some point you can observe ghost villages near the canyon.
    Unfortunately tourists throw plastic bottles and other waste in the canyon; if you feel like, bring an empty bag with you for collecting the trash and help to protect this marvelous place.

    I am surprised this is not a very well-known place amongst foreign tourists. I came across it coincidently on the internet and put it on my itinerary to visit. The Shirez canyon is 2 hours West of Khorramabad, towards Kuhdasht - in the Lorestan province. When we visited, there were many people & families camping out there, most of them had set up their tents to camp for many days. We met a large family of Lurs who ended up hosting us for lunch. They were going to camp out there for 2 weeks.

    You can hike in the canyon for many hours, and the scenes are really awesome. I'd definitely recommend visiting it for a day trip.

    Let's imagine the deep valley filled with trees, current stream of clear river, cascades flowing from rocks and boiling spring from the rocks ... If you are delighted with this beautiful image, you can visit this Canyon (Tang-e-Boraq) in 190 km north of Shiraz!! It can be an enjoyable one-day-trip for you :)

    If you travel to Qeshm, remember to never miss Chahkooh Canyon. This natural attraction is one of the seven wonders on the beautiful island of Qeshm. This gorge has rocks and sculptures that are naturally formed over time and each one can give you hours to watch.
    If you're interested in counting the stars at night, the Chahkuh Strait can show you another face of the night sky.

    One of the most beautiful and beautiful nature of the province is located in the city of Bostanabad. It is famous for the mountains of Iran due to herbs, meadows, grasslands and pastures.On the slopes of the Sahand Mountains, the most beautiful alluvial valleys with villages, gardens and fields have been amazingly impressive.

    The area with forest cover of oak trees and other trees and shrubs, and mountains, is exposed to its pristine and beautiful nature. The route to this area is clear and its passage is accompanied by many ups and downs. In some places, you should continue to walk in the form of a rock and go through the gaps and solos. Along the way, it is seen from the top of the deep valley that the rushing river of the horse's tail flows in its heart.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this canyon. I stopped here with my guide on the way to Alamut Castle and had a picnic to enjoy the views. The canyon is impressive with high and unique walls which were once under the Caspian Sea. A must see when in Iran.

    We camped in Kal-e Jeni for 1 night .one of most amazing and bizarre experiences you could possibly have. Very picturesque and authentic views. it has 30 minutes of simple hiking to reach to the water and the camp site. The river water is drinkable since it is underground water which comes from Ezmeyghan Village.you can hike simply to the end of valley in 1 hour. just a part of the pass the depth of water gets about 2-3 meters,but you can take the detour and walk on the side rocks. the water was not above my belly when i passed the water.You can also see Gabr houses dug in the valley when you get to the end of valley. If anyone wants to visit Kal-e Jeni, i strongly advice to also visit Ezmeyghan village which is about 5 km away from there.
