When you stay in an Eco-Lodge you're looking for a welcoming and careful place, with attention to environment and local culture. Well, Reza is the personification of hospitality and passion for Varzaneh history, traditions, urbanistics, geology and environment protection (in the past he "saved" the Black Mountain leading local people protest against an extraction industry theathing the environment). He spontanuosly accompaigned us to discover the beauties of the zone. He even took wonderful pictures of us during our excursion and sent us in the evening! We met also his brother, good buddy for food and activities too. Said that, no matter if (probably because we booked only 2 hours before and we were the only guests) the room wasn't 100% perfect or if the wifi is improvable, that's definitively the place to stay in Varzaneh.

We really enjoyed the good,but short stay there. It's the perfect place to get to know the Iranian hospitality and culture. We took a short tour from our hostel in esfahan to the black mountains, salt lake and dessert. Also it was really nice that they had no problem with preparing traditional, but also vegetarian delicious food. Sadly we could only stay one night but if we have the chance, we would always come back and spend some more time with these wonderful people.

My wife and I spent a night at Chapaker. it's a nice little traditional house in Varzaneh run by Reza and his brothers. They were very hospitable and cooked us an amazing local meal for dinner. We spent the afternoon visiting the Salt Lake and watched the sun set on top of the sand dunes. Later at night Reza took us to view the night sky under the cover of darkness. It was simply spectacular.

We came here for the night desert photography: we got so much more than we anticipated! Khaleel picked us up in Isfahan and drove us to Varzana. He chatted the whole way, telling us about the area, letting us stop where we wanted for photos. He took us through the salt lake, and high into the desert sand dunes. It was incredible, and he is truly a lovely, intelligent, well-spoken young man. The guesthouse is clean, comfortable, and basic. We had requested a home-style Iranian meal, and they cooked a lovely dish that we both loved. Then, Reza took us out for night sky photography. Armed with his laser pointer and star app, he was a wealth of knowledge. His detailed understanding of the area and the geology / ecology are fantastic too. Overall, loved the care by Reza, his brothers and nephew. Thank you!

Mr Khalili, the owner of the guest house is a very friendly and humble person. He is like the head of tourism for the desert town Varzaneh. His brothers are helping him in the guest house and are also very friendly people. When I arrived in the evening, Mr Khalili invited me for dinner. The brother of him cooked omelette for me because I am vegetarian. After Dinner Mr Khalili organised that I can join a group of Iranian Astrologe to see the star sky in the desert, and the will make a bonfire. I am very impressed by the flexibility and quick management of activity from Mr Khalili. All his help and the astrological evening is free of charge. But I was too tired sothat this evening I missed a precious get together with lovely Iranian people (from Teheran ) and lovely host from Varzaneh. The second day Mr Khalili send his brother Ali to be my driver. And he showed me the town the salt lake and the cow well, the water temple and the pigeon tower. After them Ali brought me to my guest house in Isfahan. During the visit in the town Varzaneh, Mr. Khalili tried to catch me up and explained me the local culture in the ethnological museum of Varzaneh. Thanks to his explanation I understand a lot of the local daily life and the ecological and environmental history of the town. Mr Khalili is a geologist and also studied geography. He loves the nature and the culture of Varzaneh and devotes his life for keeping Varzaneh in a healthy ecological system, and keeping the natural and the cultural landscape of the town. He founded a NGO, which is a good instrument for him to activate both local people and travelers to help him achieving his goal. He has an Album which you can see in the gathering room for breakfast and dinner. In this Album almost 40 years history of the village was documented by his Fotos. The album was about daily life life and changes all throughout the years. It is a worth of looking into this album. It is well explained in English and I called it “a museum “. His Number is +98 913 203 0096 the gues house is simple, and don’t expect luxury here in the desert. You will go out your room for toilet but in the room you can take a shower. But if you love people this is the paradise. We sit together on the ground and have breakfast together. Mr Khalili performed the local dialects to the audience from Teheran during our breakfast . As a geologist he has a small collection of gyms he found around Varzaneh. He explained me each one of them. If you have questions in geography or geology or culture, he will answer you all the questions. Hope I can come here back again to visit this small town in the desert and visit Mr Khalili.
