Exploring Southeast Iran: From Zahedan to Chabahar
Set out on an enchanting five-day odyssey from the vibrant city of Zahedan to the remote beauty of Chabahar, nestled in the southeastern extremity of Iran. This captivating expedition invites you to explore a region rich in history, culture, and natural wonders, offering an immersive experience that will leave you spellbound by the diverse landscapes and unique heritage along the way.
After sightseeing in Zahedan city, head towards the border and leave for Mirjaveh. While driving on the road, the signposts show the name of Mirjaveh and the edge of Pakistan side by side. Mirjaveh is the only eastern border of Iran through which tourists can cross to Pakistan. Also, Mirjaveh railway station and Ladiz Tapeh Castle are some of the historical sights of this border city.
On the morning of the second day, you can leave Mirjaveh for Khash. Along the way to Ladiz Cave, the constantly flowing water will surprise you. Next, see Tamin village and the historical cemetery of “Seventy Mullahs.” Don’t forget to take a photo of the magnificent Taftan Peak.
As the sunset approaches, reach Kash and spend the night in one of the accommodations in this city.
At the beginning of the third day, continuing your journey from Khash to Saravan is better. If you continue from Saravan to the east and border of Pakistan, you will reach the village of Kalpurgan, where you can see this famous pottery-making process. This type of handmade pottery by village women is still prevalent from thousands of years ago.
In addition to Kalpurgan pottery, Dareh Negaran Valley petroglyphs, Sinokan ancient castle, Bakhshan historical castle, Dezak Jame Mosque, Meshkotek Cave of Kalpurgan, Nahok and Kohak villages and finally, Kont Castle are among the sights of Saravan. So, with all these historical monuments, it is better to think about staying overnight in Saravan.
On the fourth day of your trip in the Sistan Region, before reaching Chabahar, dedicate yourself to visiting the cities of Rask, Pashrin and Sarbaz. On the way, you can see tropical and subtropical fruit gardens such as bananas, mangoes, papayas and citrus fruits and buy their products. We suggest you spend the night in one of the cities of Sarbaz city.
With the sunrise on the fifth day, slowly leave for this trip’s last destination, Chabahar. The sights of Chabahar do not need to be defined. From Martian mountains and Golfeshan springs to Baluchi mirror-embroidered clothes, everyone is ready to complete the pleasure of your trip in the far southeast of Iran.
