Overview

Ilam and The Glorious Shadad Canyon

The tour starts right from Ilam and we move to Razianeh canyon, a natural, eye-catching phenomenon. It has been formed due to the faults and earth movements. The canyon is so peaceful as you can hear the wind’s sound as it spins into rocks and enjoy the fresh air for hours. After having breakfast here, we boat toward the next destination through a valley, called Shadad. As you see this area you’ll find out the reason it’s become a very popular tourist area. The oak trees and playful squirrels have made the valley sprightly vivacious and it also has a great view to Samireh river and dam.

The valley is about 700 meters tall; you may see many people boating or fishing downside. Apart from natural values, some prehistoric man-made works related to 3000 BC are visible on the rocks and we can easily say it’s a glorious masterpiece created by nature and human. The works show us the evolution of Bronze to Iron age. One of the region monuments is Shadad Cave. During a survey on the environment soil, they realized it was a part of the great historical architecture and it resulted in a Sassanid monument discovery. Still, there are a lot of historical signs to be found in this wonderland.

Next, we move to Badreh field that is 15 km away from Shadad, we eat lunch here and go to another town, 45 km further, is called Dareh Shahr. We come here to savor a combination of nature and history, where a towering castle was established on Kabirkouh mount in Bahram canyon. Bahram Choubin, the founder of this army castle, was one of the Sassanid generals. He used to come to this area for hunting and entertaining as it is a habitat for various animals. The castle also functioned as a strategic army refuge, because it’s hidden among rocks with high walls.

Finally, we go back to Ilam for having dinner and after a little walk around the city, we get back to the hotel. The best season for visiting Ilam is late winter and early spring when all plants are lively and lush. If you’re inspired by such a mysterious territory, just don’t forget to have your camera for recording the picturesque landscapes on this adventurous tour.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

far away from hectic world

I was impressed by the vast size of green in the area of Ilam, once we stepped in the surrounding areas. The jungle greets us from all around. It was everything I wanted to be, so impressive and magical. I highly recommend visiting the historical sites. I think the combination of nature and history are quite excellent.

4th times in Iran

This is my fourth time in Iran. An added feature to explore the west part of the country was Rasool’s idea and I am glad to take it. Till can;t believe I was traveling to the west, it was breathtaking. Thank you rasool for this amazing recommendation.

5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Our 3 day tour was a blast. Our guide worked really hard to make everyone feel comfortable. We enjoyed his enthusiastic attitude and willingness to connect with us. We like the trip itinerary, planning and leisure time so we could do our own thing. We had great meals, and we enjoyed every single bite of it. I highly recommend visiting Ilam.
