YOUR CHANCE TO Edit

For passionate travellers and unspoiled nature lovers these sites are of particular interest: they proceed relatively little, and are not as "popular" in alpine community. Here nature appears in the most glowing terms: majestic mountain ridges and running waterfalls, salt lakes and endless green meadows, the local flavour of nomadic camps and light fragile bridges thrown over the gorges.

DESCRIPTION Edit

The mountains are divided into many parallel sub-ranges (up to 10, or 250 km wide), and have the same age as the Alps. There are lot of peaks above the 4000 m, southern ranges of the Fars Province have somewhat lower summits, reaching 4000 metres.

LOCATION Edit

The Zagros mountain range is located mainly on the territory of Iran and Iraq in part. It begins in northwestern Iran and roughly corresponds to Iran's western border, and it spans the whole length of the western and southwestern Iranian plateau, ending at the Strait of Hormuz.
