Another gorgeous sight in the Alamut region is Hir village which is 65 kilometers away from Qazvin city. This tiny village alone produces the majority of the country’s cornelian cherry and is widely known as the capital of Iranian cornelian cherry. The harvesting season in this lovely village is what makes it unique. After the cornelian cherries are harvested, they are stored on the rooftops of houses and as a result, a picturesque reddish tint fills the entire village.
Every year in September, ‘The Cornelian Cherry Festival’ takes place in Hir Village. In this festival, visitors can experience the local culture and traditional dance of the village inhabitants.
