  • Arasbaran forests

    Arasbaran forests are the best sources of nature in the North-east of Iran and we have to respect it; respect to all trees and this great nature. We call this region a “wildlife museum” because of the great variety of plants and animals. The start point of the tour is Tabriz, so we continue from there to Arasbaran forests (200 km, 03:00) and walk to Babak castle; one of the most amazing castles of Iran. Our lunch will be a box made by a tour guide and is full of different traditional and energic participants and I’m sure it will be great at nature. Babak castle is built by Babak Khoramdin in the Sasanian Empire era, the height of the castle is 2,300 m and has a great view from Arasbaran forests. We return to Kaleybar and have dinner in our nice local house.
