Traversing Iran's Eastern Beauty: Neyshabur to Sarkhs
Embark on a three-day journey along Iran’s Eastern Silk Road from Neyshabur to Torbat-e Heydariyeh. Explore Neyshabur’s cultural treasures, traverse lush landscapes to Sarkhes, visit Mazdavand Cave and historic caravanserais, and end your adventure in Torbat-e Heydariyeh, enriched by natural beauty and historical sites.
Neishabur Mashhad Sarkhs Salehabad
In the easternmost part of the Silk Road in Iran, we start our journey from Neyshabur. It’s a pity to come to Neishabour in the spring and not drown in Firuze and not visit Attar Neishaburi, Khayyam and Kamalul Molk the painter. Continue from there and go to the wooden village of Nishabour. An all-wooden town that is more spectacular than ever in spring.
After crossing the slopes of Mount Binalud and visiting Imam Reza’s shrine, it is better to stay the night in Mashhad because there is no suitable place to stay on the way, and it is better to continue the journey early in the morning.
Leave Mashhad early in the morning towards Sarkhes. The road from Mashhad to Sarkhes in spring is one of the most beautiful roads in Iran. The unevenness on both sides of the road is covered with green velvet that forces you to stop repeatedly. Geologists call this form Hazaradre land or Bad Land.
The first destination on this route is Mazdavand Cave. This natural cave has had different uses in different historical periods and is currently used for military purposes. To enter the cave, you need permission from the military forces, which is not a problem usually, and this permission is issued at the cave entrance.
If you continue towards Ferkhes, less than half an hour away, the Bezegan Lake sign will guide you to this azure-colored lake.
Returning to the main road about ten kilometers ahead, follow the Rabat Sharaf sign. The asphalt road will take you to the front door of one of the most beautiful caravanserais in Iran. This caravanserai will remind you that you are on the Silk Road, and you will proudly admire this ancient artistic monument.
The charms of the road are endless and will make you drown in green pleasure. The border of Iran is wide here, and the best way to continue is the border road to the south towards Saleh Abad.
We will start today with Sarkhas Road to Saleh Abad. This winding and dangerous road goes parallel to the Harirod River until the Dosti dam is on the border of Iran and Turkmenistan. Drive carefully on this road and remember every moment of its pristine nature.
The continuation of this road goes from Saleh Abad to Torbat-e Heydariyeh. Tabasi Caravanserai, Amini House, Qutbuddin Haider Tomb and Torbat-e Heydariyeh Anthropological Museum are some of the historical attractions of this city that you will visit at the end of your trip.
