Photographer's Note

Nicknamed the 'Paradise of Iran', Kelardasht is a fertile depression more than 1250m above sea level. Recent archaeological discoveries( the finds are in the National Museum of Iran in Tehran) have uncovered habitation dating back to the 10th cen'nry AD. The main town in the region is Hasan Keif, on the road between Abbas Abad and Marzan Abad.

Although it's not very easy to reach without a car, Kelardasht is the place to head for if you are hankering af'er some outdoor activities. There are some great hiking trails. especially around the tiny and peculiarly shaped Valasht Lake; troul fishing spots in nearby streams; and even cross-country skiing in winter. Ideally, come for a few days and bring camping equipment with you.
