The proposed route of this trip starts from Yasouj city and ends in Arak. However, you can continue this way from Ahvaz to Yasuj.
Due to its proximity to the Zagros Mountains and Dana Peak, Yasouj is considered a cold region and has been used as a resort town since the distant past. Take the opportunity to visit Yasouj and see “Tengeh Mehrian,” Yasouj forest park and Tang Tamradi waterfall (on Babamaidan road) and then leave Yasouj for Sisakht.
As you approach the city of Seskhet, you will enter the protected area of Dana. Sisakht is the closest city to the 4350-meter peak of Hoz Dal from Dana Mountain, and without a doubt, a night stay near this peak will be a pleasant experience.
On the morning of the second day, leave Siskhet for Gandoman, Beldaji and Shalamzar and plan to stay overnight in Borujen. Borujen is located near the border of Isfahan province. Attractions such as Siyasard Spring, five kilometers from Borujen, Chaghakhor Lagoon, 40 kilometers from Beldaji, and Gandoman Lagoon are among the destinations you will see on the second day.
The next destination of this route is Shahrekord, The capital of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, 100 km southwest of Isfahan. Don’t forget to try local sweets such as “kakoli” while exploring this city and talk to the sweet people of this city. You can spend the night in one of Shahrekord’s eco-tourist lodges to get to know the lifestyle of the people of this city.
The fourth day of the journey on the eastern edge of the Zagros mountain range is dedicated to the route from Shahrekord to Feridunshahr. There are two routes to reach Feridunshahr, which are approximately 140 kilometers long. To the west of the path, there are the forests of Pushtkoh. “Tang Sayad” National Park is also located on this road. After reaching Fereydunshahr and staying one night in this city, the journey continues to Golpayegan.
Golpayegan is famous for its local dairy products and special kebab. So don’t worry about breakfast and lunch in Golpayegan. You can tour the city by visiting the Golpayegan Minar, this city’s market, and the Jame Mosque. If you are interested in historical buildings, you can spend the night in Gogad Citadel, a well-equipped accommodation.
On the morning of the fifth day, going around Golpayegan and Gogad and visiting Khomeini City is better. Khwansar, with its famous honey, is also nearby. You can even see the neighborhoods and visit its greenhouses.
As night falls, you will reach Arak, and your journey will end at the eastern slopes of Zagros.
