About the Martian Mountains

About 35 to 40 kilometers from the city of Chabahar, along the road, is one of the wonders of Iran's nature, known as the Martian Mountains or Miniature, and is known as Kalani or Aria in the local language.

These mountains may not be well-known, but they are unique in Iran and the world. The color, material and appearance are very strange. The Martian mountains are colored between the golden and white, and vary in color from the light during the day. These mountains are the continuation of the Zagros Mountains, which extends to Pakistan, and is similar to the Nehbandan of southern Khorasan.

The height of the mountainous mountains is very different. You are not faced with an equal mountain range. One is 5 meters high and another 100 meters. Due to the fact that the mountains are sandstone, clay and limestone, Chabahar residents use these mountains to produce cement and bricks.

The haphazard shapes of these phenomena are due to the rapid erosion against wind and rain, which, unlike calm and natural erosion, does not leave a resting period for plant growth, and it shows the region with its edges and gaps. Also, the desiccant resistance of the Earth's layers in this area sometimes causes the formation of columns with warheads on the head or mountains that are cut like a knife.

geomorphic phenomena

The Martian Mountains are one of the monuments drawn along the coast from the Catcho area to the gwadar Bay, and are the geomorphic phenomena of this area. The Martian Mountains had been under the waters of the Oman Sea for several million years, in that form at that time as a small part of the Indian Ocean, and they were getting out of the water.

According to available studies, the texture of the miniature mountains dates back to the third period of geology, four to five million years ago The soil of these mountains is sandstone and marl. Unlike the Red Planet Mars, the color of the Martian Mountains is bright gray, besides, on the body of these mountains, there are various fossils of organisms such as oysters and fish that are indescribable.

Oysters, fish and whale fossils are found in some parts of the area and are considered one of the attractions of the Martian mountains. It is likely that the mountains have been dipping in the waters of Oman, or the tide of the sea has brought its own to the area and left its work in this way.

Getting to the fishing village of Tis, the scenic view of the marsh mountains near the road ends. The village dates back to 2,500 years ago and was famous for the book of the Conquerors of Alexander the Great, and has gradually become Ti. Tiz Port is an active business that has been destroyed by the Mongols.
