Destinations
Arasbaran
Arasbaran
Nature is God's words to humans that don’t have the limitation of letters and visualize the sky, the moon, the sun, the earth, the mountains, the forest, and everything in the world. These images can be seen all together in Arasbaran forests. Beautiful springs and rivers flow romantically into Aras. About its biodiversity, it would be enough to say that the Arasbaran forests are one of the biosphere reserves of the country. The moment you observe the red deer and Caucasian black grouse, you will miss watching the golden eagle. You will see the passion in the red cheeks of children who are eating raspberries and wild pomegranates. The beauty of Arasbaran is not only its nature. You’ll fall in love with the voice of the Ashiqs (moving people who play an instrument and sing) among the nomads and will mourn for the resistance and struggles of Babak Khorramdin in Babak Castle. Whispers and requests are still heard from the churches of the region and who knows how much granted pray from these churches have reached heavens.

This magnificent phenomenon has amazingly connected water and land.
