Badab-e Surt springs - Iran Tourist Attractions
The Badab-e Surt springs in Mazandaran Province, Iran, are renowned for their stunning travertine pools and unique orange color due to iron oxide deposits. Situated at 1,814 meters above sea level, these springs differ in color, taste, smell, and water volume. They resemble similar springs in Turkey, New Zealand, Italy, and the USA. Registered as Iran’s second natural phenomenon in 2008, Badab-e Surt is the world’s second saline spring. Plans are in progress to register this site globally as a geopark and possibly twin it with Turkey’s Pamukkale Springs.
