“Manochehr Sotoudeh,” a great Iranologist who only passed away a few years ago, has a ten-volume book called “From Astara to Starbad”! In this book, he has discussed the ancient and historical monuments of three northern provinces of Iran, namely Gilan, Mazandaran and Golestan. We also want to be his companions. But we start our journey not from Astara but from Anzali.
Shores and Splendors: A 4-Day Voyage from Astara to Gorgan
Embark on a journey that sweeps through coastal landscapes, historical gems, and the enchanting beauty of northern Iran. From the tranquil shores of Anzali to the captivating city of Gorgan, immerse yourself in the wonders that await at every turn.
Rasht Anzali Savadkuh GHaemshahr Behshahr Sari Gorgan
The beautiful port of Anzali, which has become a free trade zone, is famous for its lagoon. The coastal boulevard of Bandar Anzali has also provided a pleasant path for walking along the port.
We move from Anzali port to Rasht—the center of Gilan province and the birthplace of many events in Iran’s contemporary history. Strolling around the corners of Rasht Bazaar and walking on the footpath of Shahrdari Square to Sabzeh Maidan is a must for a trip to Rasht.
The next destination is Lahijan. A city where the fragrance of cookies and the scent of tea plantations are mixed and the pleasure is completed by walking around the swimming pool of this city. The Iran Tea History Museum and the tomb of Kashif al-Sultaneh, who cultivated the first tea leaves in Lahijan, are also in Lahijan.
The next destination of the trip in the northern part of Iran is Langrod. Kyakalaye, Lilakuh and Komle lagoons are among the natural sights of Langrod. The brick bridge of Langrud is also one of the historical monuments, which is better to cross and watch Langrud’s slow and calm river from above.
You must be tired now. So find a place to stay in Chabaksar and rest, because you will see many attractions the next day and today.
The next destination for north travelers after Chabaksar is Ramsar. A city whose attractions do not need to be defined. Ramsar Hotel and Moalem Boulevard, with tall palm trees and the Marble Palace, are only part of Ramsar’s attractions. The Ramsar cable car also allows you to go to the top of the green peak overlooking the city of Ramsar without climbing.
Leave Ramsar for Nowshahr. On your way, you will see Tankabon, one of the centers of citrus cultivation in the north of the country, Salmanshahr and the tourist city of Namak-Abroud. Finally, you will reach Chalus. A city that is familiar to those interested in the Chalus Road and is considered a symbol of entering the northern cities of Iran.
If you reach Nowshahr in the evening, it is better to stay in this city and see the sights in the east of Mazandaran tomorrow.
Qaimshahr and Swadkoh region are the first cities you can visit on the morning of the third day of the trip. Gerdkoh ancient hill, Kutna Forest, Telar forest park, and Khybus forest reserve await you in this section. After exploring Qaimshahr, you can move to Sari, the capital of Mazandaran province. The famous Badab Surat and Chort Lake Springs can be seen around this city.
When you leave Sari, you should know you are only 45 minutes away from the next destination, Behshahr. So it is better to spend the night in Behshahr.
Leave Mazandaran tomorrow morning, enter Golestan province, and spend your day in the capital of Golestan province, namely Gorgan, seeing monuments such as Naharkhoran. Golestan province has a complete collection of sights you should spend enough time seeing.
