Overview

While traveling to Iran, Yazd will definitely be one of your highlighted destinations. Not only the attractions in the city but also many charms are waiting for you in the suburbs of this city.

On this tour, we will show you some of the must-see spots near Yazd. It’s a very good choice for nature lovers and those who like to get familiar with the Zoroastrian culture. As the first plan, we will move toward the Zoroastrian Towers of Silence, placed on some sand hills, 15 km from southwest of Yazd. Because these towers are located at a high level, you need to do a little difficult hiking to reach them.

In the past, Zoroastrian held their funerals in this area. Based on their religious beliefs, the soil should maintain pure, so they didn’t bury the dead bodies underground. Instead, Zoroastrians put corpses inside the towers and after some days, vultures and birds ate the corpses, so only the bones remained inside a well in the same tower. This custom was being held for a long time, but it was banned in Pahlavi time. Nowadays, this area is one of the most outstanding monuments in Iran.

As Yazd is located in an arid area, let’s not miss the experience of being in a desert. So after exploring silent towers, we start moving toward a desert near Yazd. Sadegh Abad Desert is located 140 km from Yazd near the small village of Sadegh Abad. As you see this desert, you’ll be amazed by the wonderful star-shaped sandhills and lots of other beauties.

Walk on pure sand dunes, feel the calmness and watch relaxing sunset of the desert. Also, many recreational camping centers exist in this area and you have the option to try camel riding, motor biking, volleyball, badminton, and parasailing.
