Located only 36 km from the hustle and bustle of Shiraz, Ghalat is an amazing village with perfect jungles, springs and cool pleasant weather. You may already have heard of Shiraz as a city rich in terms of history, culture, and architecture. However, the city is well-known for its gardens and greeneries both inside the city and around it. Visiting Ghalat you will find many local houses made of bricks and local materials; recently many café and traditional restaurants have been prepared in the area so that you can rest from time to time while hiking the hills and mountains around.
You can not see all the beauties in this lovely village until you get close to it. Water springs flowing from the slopes of the mountain, originating from the springs located at the top of the mountains, as well as several thousand-year-old trees and deep, cool valleys in the hottest time of the year, making visitors feel cold in hot summer.
If you visit this village in spring, it will be so dreamy just like you had gone to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan. The physical texture of the stunning mountains, the winding alleys with white streams flowing through it, have given the village a unique charm. Along with the breathtaking nature and the unique waterfalls of this village, there is an old church in Qalat village in Shiraz, which has an interesting stone -base architecture and represents how old this village is. This church, which used to be a place of worship for Christians living in the village, is now in ruins due to their migration.
This dreamy village is especially recommended to those interested in rural tourism and long-distance hiking. The people are so hospitable and warm-hearted and if you have a call to stay overnight, local houses are the best possible options here.
