Overview

Hoz-e Soltan Lake Tour

The salty lakes are precious areas in deserts, as apart from their pure natural beauty, it’s proved that the sea salt has numerous undeniable advantages for body and it’s necessary that people use this kind of salt in their food. The salt lake, called Hoz-e Soltan, is 40 km away from north of Qom and 85 km away from south of Tehran. We start this tour from Tehran and move directly to the Lake. As we drive 35 km toward Qom, we get to a road, which leads us directly to the lake. Luckily, they have also built a road through the lake so we won’t get stuck in the swamp.

Generally, the lake area is about 240 km square but based on the season we visit the lake, its shape and width can vary. In seasons with less rain, the majority area of lake’s surface is covered by thick salt layers. But when there’s lots of rain and snow melting especially due to Alborz mountain which lies in the north of the lake, the water space gets larger. You may observe two distinct ponds which are parts of the lake. The west pond is called Hoz-e Soltan and the east one is named Hoz-e Mare. The water that flows to the lake first fills Hoz-e Mare and then Hoz-e Soltan.

Passing through the lake can be joyful with lots of fun. You will spend several hours longingly to walk to its end but you will definitely sink a bit and some playful salt will find their way into your clothes and shoes. You may also spot some bike riders who have come just to pass through the lake and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere around. The only animal living in the lake is a kind of shrimp called Artemia, because of its ability to adapt to the salty water. Of course, there are more animals living around the lake like rabbits, rats, deer, foxes, wolves, jackals, pigeons, geese, storks, flamingos, snakes and etc.

Another attraction of the deserts in Iran is caravansaries. After you visit the lake there’s also a chance to go to Ghale Sangi caravansary aged about 900 years. At last, we move back to the capital city, Tehran. The best season to visit the lake is the beginning of the spring and in the middle of autumn as there won’t be annoying coldness or bright sunlight.

Excellent service and support Excellent Service ! i am surprised by the reactivity and the will to help and find quickly hotels, flights and solutions for me, even though the holiday season makes things challenging. Chatting through whatsapp made things super smooth and extremely easy. I was interacting with two people from TAP Persia, Rojin and Sohrab. They were just amazing ! They are the ones who reached out to me directly and interacted instantly with me day and night. Great job guys !I used earlier a different company but i was disappointed, i strongly recommend TAP Persia .Keep up the great work !

Fabulous agency - can't recommend more highly for travellers to Iran I decided to go to Iran at short notice and was only able to do so thanks to the exceptional service provided by TAP Persia.What further complicated was my ignorance of being in the middle of Nowruz and the impact that has on flight availabilities etc.In the first instance, that revolved around speedy obtainment of a visa as well as other aspects such as insurance and mah card via their great-value welcome pack.Thereafter, all of my accommodation, tour guides and transport between destinations was arranged by the beyond-wonderful Mahgol with tremendous efficiency, patience and responsiveness - I could not praise nor thank her enough.Communications are as good as can be.With my lack of Farsi and, more specifically, incomprehension of the alphabet, doing things in this manner was the only way to go.All of the guides - Fatemah, Amin, Fardin, Moji, Peyman and Masoud - were fantastic being passionate, knowledgeable, smarter-than-average bears and very nice people.Rasool, Mehrnoush and Sohrab in the office were also very helpful.I would say though that, to help them (especially) to try to draft your itinerary as much as possible before approaching them as this will save time i.e. places, days in each, hotel price-range then trust them to select the latter for you.

Great Service 🙂 TApersia accompanied us well on the way to our Iran visa. My wife's visa took 2 weeks longer than mine (German EU & I'm Swiss). Our questions were always answered quickly by the nice Mahgol via WhatsApp. We think she did her best for our visa processing. After a while, we were also asked how we were doing! Nice, support and promptness are at the highest level.

Solo Saudi female in <3 IRAN <3 10/10. It's hard for me to be succinct, but I will try. I am a Saudi who has been impressed, curious, and infatuated by Iranian culture(s), Iron Age history, Islamic & other religious histories, architecture, and geography for over 15 years. Yum, and food. I wanted initially to continue my Persian language study at Dehkhoda Institute, however student visas take much longer than other visas to process, and I would likely miss my class during the processing time. I was disheartened and scrambled through my Google bookmarks looking for old travel that I had saved over the years in my Iran folder. 😉 TAP Persia was bookmarked numerous times and I quickly applied for a tourist visa. Hey, I can still practice some Persian as a tourist, right? THE PROCESS WAS SO EASY. So smooth! Mahgol deserves all the praise and recognition for bringing relief to my anxious-self (because I had already long-ago booked my airline tickets and took time off work!), and she walked me through all the steps in a timely manner and with competence and grace. Even during the first week of Norouz and Ramadan, I got a friendly update and advice -- got my tourist visa within 5 or 6 days (the Ministry was closed for Ramarouz, but WOW that was still quick). I cried from happiness and surprise... Thank you thank you. I will be in Iran April to mid-May. Originally I just registered for TAP Persia welcome package + visa help, but now I'm pretty curious about signing up for one or 2 of their tours now. I am beyond impressed and excited. This travel company, Mahgol, & this team already made me feel safe and like I'm going home, and I imagine with their business practice, will prosper for many years down the road. Thank you so much. Someone please remind me to update this post with photos once I arrive to Iran <3

Iranvisum Ich habe mein Visa für den Iran über TAP Persia beantragt, da der normale Weg zu kompliziert war und sehr viele potentielle Fehler birgt. Ich kann den Service definitiv empfehlen. Alles ist sehr gut und detailliert beschrieben. Der Preis für diesen Service ist es in meinen Augen definitiv Wert. Auch der Kontakt nach der Beantragung über WhatsApp war sehr gut. Sehr freundlich und hilfreich.

Stunning views all in one day!

This tour around Tehran was brilliant, we went as a family of 4. The ride was comfortable. The area was all breathtaking and it was magnificent! I highly recommend taking your shoes off and walking around the salt lake.

Spectacular, bravo!

The entire experience was wonderful. Saw so much and took so many pictures. Our guide was really nice and shared some interesting facts about Tehran S history. The tour covered a lot of ground and took us to spots we might not have discovered otherwise.
