16 Days in Iran.
The Route is:
Iran is, for sure, not a touristic country. There is no “tourism industry” working in Iran, publicizing any of its countless tourist attractions. It is a responsibility all Iranians should undertake, and we, a drop in this ocean, are proud to represent a country with the capacity to amaze you in every aspect imagined: aestheticism, adventure, historical awareness, and, most wonderfully, hospitality and kindness of the local people. Here, in this very experience that we will have together, the main themes are holiness, diversity of creeds and religious rituals, along with other natural and adventurous discoveries that add more excitement to this long journey.
After Tehran, traveling on a train to Mashhad on the second day is one of the most important points of the trip. Mashhad, as a religious city, is the first destination for Persian pilgrims to visit the holy shrine of 8th Shiite Imam, for this very reason you may be welcome by many Iranians on the train. The tomb of Ferdowsi in Tus is the best place to tell you the story of the survival of the Persian language thanks to Ferdowsi’s poetry after Arabs’ invasion 1000 years ago. Taking the flight to the southeastern part of the country will make you know a region famous for its Oil excavation by British P and eight years of war between Iraq and Iran. You will be also astonished at how the British culture has affected the area and will understand how people tried to make their country safe during the war, the effects of which you can still find in the city of Khorramshahr. Driving through the southern part of mount Zagros will lead us to the ancient city of Bishapur, inspired by Romans patterns, and the remnant of a prison belonging to Valerian the Elder a Roman Emperor. Shiraz, famous for a kind of poetry originating from 13 and 14 century by Saadi and Hafiz and diversity of food and restaurant, makes you feel sedated and reposed. Kerman, the next attraction, invites you to an adventure. Based on the season of your journey, you will be able to visit the desert, the famous Kaluts of Shahdad called the small Grand Canyon of Iran. Moreover, you will see how the people of Kerman survived from a massacre during the Qajar dynasty. Walking in the clay alleys in Yazd, the only city of Iran the whole of which is inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list, is an experience you will never forget. And the last city which is shining in the history of Persia, Isfahan, welcomes you to hugs you in its hands. Two days full of architectural wonders, each has a hidden story in its bosom. This trip will end in Tehran but before departing you will pay a visit to Qom, a religious city and the holy shrine of the sister of the third Shia Imam.
