Journey Through Northern Iran: From Semnan to Behshahr
Embark on an unforgettable journey from the heart of Semnan to the charming realms of Behshahr. Traverse picturesque routes, witness the splendor of Shahmirzad and Kiasar, and immerse yourself in the wonders of Soleyman Tangeh Dam. It is a two-day adventure that uncovers the hidden treasures of northern Iran.
In our country, some routes are spectacular in all seasons of the year, and whenever you visit them, you will encounter different views. On this trip, you will go on one of these routes that starts from Semnan province and ends in Mazandaran province.
From the Semnan belt, it enters the Kiasar road in the north direction, and after passing through Mahdishahr, it reaches Shahmirzad, which has one of the most extensive walnut orchards in the world. After sightseeing in Shahmirzad’s spectacular autumn and buying Shahmirzadi’s first-class walnuts and dried fruits, continue towards Foulad Mahalla.
Enjoy being on one of the most spectacular mountain roads in Iran without any rush, and after passing through Foulad Mahaleh and reaching Telmadreh highway, watch the colorful springs of Badab Surat.
These colorful stepped springs are one of Iran’s most spectacular natural attractions, although the access road is unsuitable. For the last part of access to the springs, we also suggest that you park your car in the Badabsort parking lot and use the local transportation that is always available.
After visiting the springs of Badabsort and returning to Talmadere highway, continue the path to Kiasar. You can stay the night in Kiasar or continue the route and stay in the hotel near Soleyman Tangeh Dam.
Today, take enough time to explore the beautiful lake of Soleyman Tangeh Dam; you will not regret it. From boating and water sports on the lake to visiting the top of the dam and walking on it, and of course, having a picnic on the lake’s edge, some activities will probably take you until noon. Another name for Soleyman Tangeh Dam is Shahid Rajaei Dam.
Continue the route towards Sari and reach Behshahr by crossing the Sari ring road towards Gorgan. Behshahr is one of the beautiful and clean cities of Mazandaran province, which has been largely spared from the evils of villa builders since it is not a coastal city.
Behshahr is one of the historical cities of Iran, and in this city, you can visit Mellat Park and Cheshmeh Emarat. The endpoint of this trip is Abbas Abad Lake in the heart of Abbas Abad Behshahr forest—a lake formed in one of the most unique Iranian gardens. The collection of Safavid buildings, including the palace, bath, tower, water mill, dam and water control valves, and the beautiful autumn nature and the view of the lake and the building in the middle will surprise you.
