Canyons of Iran

Canyons of Iran. Iran is a vast country with four seasons and, in terms of nature, is one of the most comprehensive natural geographic structures in the world. The valleys of Iran are very diverse and exciting and spectacular due to climate variation. The valleys of Iran are considered as one of the main tourist destinations for being unknown to the tourists.

If we want to categorize the iran valleys and canyons as a whole, then we can be divided into two main categories:

  • Mountain Canyons of Iran
    • Mountain canyons, which are mostly located around the Great Zagros mountain range, are located in the western part of Iran, and the water erosion factor has played a significant role in the formation of these valleys. In such places as the Shirez canyon, the kool Khersan Valley, Raghez valleyis this types.
  • Desert Canyons of Iran
    • The desert canyons located in the center, east and south of Iran, and the wind erosion factor, have played a greater role in the creation of these valleys. The valleys like the stars valley, the Rage valley and the Kal Jenny in Tabas are of this style.

Apart from the special valleys in Iran, the geographic and earthy conditions of Iran in some regions have created unique mountains or hills. Like the Aladaglar Rainbow Mountains in Zanjan Or the Martian Mountains in Chabahar with a very fantastic and special appearance.
