Embracing Nature's Wet Embrace at Tang Vashi
Amid Tehran’s heat, Tang Vashi offers a serene escape by the river. Explore its open spaces and historic inscriptions. Immerse yourself in cool river waters while gazing at Qajar-era art. Venture deeper to discover a second gorge and a roaring waterfall. Accessible via an asphalt road before Firouzkoh, Tang Vashi awaits near Jalizjand village.
Firouzkoh City in the northeast of Tehran province is one of the best tourist destinations in the summer. There are so many attractions around Firuzkoh that they cannot be included in a travel proposal. In this summer travel proposal, we will visit one of Iran’s famous and beautiful straits, the Vashi Strait.
The Vashi Strait, also known as the Savashai Strait, consists of two back-to-back straits called “Sa” and “Vashi,” between which there is a vast plain and a beautiful meadow. To cross the strait, you must enter the icy water of the river. And at the lowest point of the river, the water will be at least below your knees.
Your efforts to not get wet are futile. The fact is that the whole pleasure of this trip is to get wet! Of course, you can rent a mule and ride through this route. However, this ride is not so easy and has a lot of excitement!
But it is not only the nature of Tang Vashi that is worth seeing. One of the Qajar era inscriptions is carved on the mountain wall and inside the first gorge. At the same time as you feel the bone-chilling cold of the river water, raise your head to see the hunting scene of Fath Ali Shah Qajar.
The first gorge is shorter, and most tourists are satisfied with visiting it and relaxing in the plain after the valley. But those who continue the path enter a longer canyon than the first one. This gorge is wider than the first one, and at the end of it, there is a roaring waterfall with a height of approximately 15 meters.
To access Tang Vashi, if you are coming from Tehran, before reaching Firouzkoh, the signpost for Tang Vashi and Jalizjand village is marked with a big sign. This road is asphalted and continues until Jalizjand village, the closest village to Tang Vashi.
- For this one-day trip, take an extra set of clothes and bring hiking sandals or suitable shoes to cross the water. The more preparation and equipment you have, the more your trip will be.
- Teng Vashi is very crowded on holidays and weekends, so you may have to park the car further away from the parking lot and walk a longer distance.
When visiting Tang Vashi, bring some garbage bags so that as you enjoy nature, the mountains and plains remain clean and beautiful.
- If you want to build a fire and start a barbecue, be sure to do it in a place where there was a fire before so that you destroy fewer plants! The greenness of Tang Vashi Plain depends on our efforts.
