3 Days

Tabriz  Urmia

Day 1: Tabriz to Urmia

Our journey commences in Tabriz, not to linger in its historical ambiance but to set forth towards the mesmerizing lakes of northwestern Iran. We’ll briefly marvel at Il Goli Lake, a man-made reservoir nestled within Tabriz, before venturing towards Urmia via the scenic Darya Road. This route, graced by the Shahid Kalantari Bridge, seamlessly connects the heart of East and West Azerbaijan, bringing Urmia Lake within a swift two-hour journey from Tabriz.

Lake Urmia, a sprawling saltwater marvel, stands as Iran’s most significant lake, cherished for its ecological and cultural importance. In summer, its waters adopt a vivid red hue, a spectacle driven by heightened salt concentrations. Alongside, a visit to Urmia’s vibrant bazaar, historical mosques, and the serene Chichest Beach Village enriches our exploration. Accommodations are plentiful, ranging from luxurious hotels to cozy local stays, with the Band promenade offering a picturesque sunset experience.

Day 2: Exploring Lakes Further

The adventure deepens as we set sights on two additional lakes, each unique in its allure. The journey continues from the Band promenade to the vast reservoir created by the Shahrchai Dam, where the tranquility of mountain-enclosed waters awaits. Our path then diverges towards the Silvana highway, leading us to the serene borders where Lake Marmisho resides. Nestled amidst towering trees and rugged terrain, Marmisho offers a tranquil retreat on the Iran-Turkey frontier, accessible after a friendly checkpoint procedure.

This day unveils the cultural tapestry of the region, adorned with Kurdish heritage and hospitality. While traditional lodging may be scarce, the opportunity to stay in a village home presents a unique immersion into local life, promising an unforgettable night among welcoming Kurdish communities.

Day 3: Enchanted by Dalanper Lake

The final leg of our journey introduces us to Dalanper Lake, a natural wonder cradled by the Dalanper mountain. Situated at the confluence of Iran, Turkey, and Iraq, its access demands resilience and an off-road spirit. En route, the majestic Sole Dokol waterfall serves as a prelude to the pristine beauty that lies ahead. The journey to Dalanper Lake unfolds over captivating mountain paths, ushering us into the heart of Iran’s borderlands with nature’s unparalleled spectacle awaiting at its zenith.

This three-day excursion not only traverses the geographic breadth of Iran’s northwestern lakes but also delves into the cultural and historical depth of its people and landscapes. From the bustling streets of Urmia to the tranquil shores of Dalanper, each step is a narrative woven into the rich tapestry of Iran’s natural and cultural heritage, offering a journey as enriching as it is breathtaking.
