Talesh is a wonderful mountainous area, and its intact nature is a charming place for those who love nature. It is located on 140 km northwest of Rasht, on the southwestern coast of the Caspian Sea. Neor Lake is home to the birds such as; ruddy shelduck and migrant swallows. Sports, fishing and other recreational activities are common and popular among visitors at this lake.

Masouleh is a vertical village in Iran. Masouleh architecture is unique. The buildings have been built into the mountain and are interconnected. Courtyards and roofs both serve as pedestrian areas similar to streets. Masouleh does not allow any motor vehicles to enter, due to its unique layout. It is the only village in Iran with such a prohibition. However, the small streets and many stairs simply also wouldn’t make it possible for vehicles to enter.

The spectacular architecture of Masouleh is well-known as “The yard of the above building is the roof of the below building”.

Yellow clay coats the exterior of most buildings in Masouleh. This allows for better visibility in the fog.
