Two-day trip to Tabas
If your idea of Tabas is a famous sand storm that you have seen only a few low-quality photos of, it is better to know that Tabas has amazing beauties to explore. My initial idea for traveling to this city was the same, so when I was moving from South Khorasan to Tehran, seeing the name of Tabas on the map, I decided to stay there for half a day. Still, the attractions of this city made me stay there after two days. I had not seen many places before leaving the city. If you are going on a trip to Tabas, my advice is to allocate about five days for sightseeing in the city. If you have a time problem, it is better to limit yourself to this itinerary that is set for two days and enjoy discovering this area.
Journey to the depth of history in the village of Esfahak
If you go from Tehran to Tabas, reaching this city will take about 10 hours. But if you are going to Tabas from the southern cities, you should not neglect the Esfahak village, about 35 kilometers south of Tabas. A town that welcomes you with the sign “Esfahak Tourism Village.” When you set foot in this village, you feel like you have entered a time tunnel, and your destination is the depth of history. Old thatched houses with lanterns placed on the corners of the streets and a clear starry sky and stars so close that you think your head will get stuck in them are waiting for you in this village. If you are tired, it is better to visit “Lamkadeh” in the town, An old house where the owners with good taste have built a cozy coffee house and sell the traditional products of their village. Lamkade bread and yogurt have an unforgettable taste. In Esfahak, several ecotourism houses have been successful in attracting tourists. Local people have many stories to tell about this village. If you can’t get enough of Esfahak, you can spend the night in one of these houses and spend the rest of your trip to Tabas.
Bathing in natural springs
Your arrival in Tabas will be memorable for you. Watching a village in the middle of the barren desert with unique beauty and greenery is fantastic. After you are tired of walking around the city streets, you should go to the Morteza Ali Spring, about 40 km from Tabas.
The river’s water is so cold that, in some areas, it suddenly warms up under your feet. After a two-hour walk and watching pristine and unique pictures, you will reach the source of hot water. Of course, you will feel this closeness from warming the water under your feet. The source of hot water is waiting for you to take a bath inside a stone tunnel that is difficult for a person to pass through. After Tani water, if you continue up the river, you will encounter the mountain walls, where the water flows at different temperatures. The natural temperature difference is fantastic.
A little further, you will see the wall of Taq Abbasi, which was built during the time of Shah Abbas above the river to control the water flow. At the bottom of the river, this arch prevents this from happening. Interestingly, it is still standing after all these years. On the way back to the city, you can have a delicious local noodle soup as a guest of the hawkers down the river.
On the second day, Fire tea in the nomads’ tent
The most famous garden of Tabas is called Gulshan, which has multiplied the beauty of this place with palm trees and tall trees and a large water stream passing through the middle of the garden. Visiting Gulshan Garden is so enjoyable that it seems useless to talk about it. You can fall asleep under the shade of one of the trees in this garden and be sure that this dream is one of the most enjoyable dreams of your life. People say that during migration, a pelican decides to land and rest in this place with the greenness of the garden, but he has never been able to leave Tabas Garden and still lives there. The authenticity of the story of the migrating pelican is not very clear, but this story is accepted with complete confidence among the local people.
If you are adventurous, you should also visit Kal Jenni Valley, where there is a nomadic village nearby. Finding the “Dikako Residence” is not easy; You have to look for some nomadic tents in the middle of a vast desert, but rest assured that you will be satisfied when you reach them. Fire tea awaits you under the countless stars of the desert sky, along with silence and nothing else.
Discovery of Kal Jenni Valley
Kal Jenni Valley is located about one kilometer from Dikako, which will attract your attention with some beautiful palm trees and a narrow stream. A stream that slowly turns into a lake. Kal Jenni Valley is an unrepeatable beauty in the middle of the desert. Inside the valley’s walls is a large hall, which was the austerity place of Zoroastrian magicians in the past. Walking in a narrow canyon with high walls is an experience you must try to know how enjoyable it is. It is better to visit Kal Jenni Valley for a few hours to enjoy this beauty finally.
Rice paddies right in the middle of the desert
The following route is the Helwan desert, The sea of endless sands with a magical atmosphere that will transform you. If you don’t have a suitable off-road car, don’t worry; driving in the vast space next to this desert can give you a similar experience. In the village of Azmeighan, you can see rice fields and date palms side by side! Two products with different needs are produced in this place, showing this region’s unique plant diversity.
