Overview

Zahedan, Zabol, Chabahar

This tour helps you to see the unique and mysterious region of Iran, called Sistan and Baluchestan. Sistan and Baluchestan Province of Iran shares borders with Pakistan and people have a mixed culture of Iran and Pakistan. They speak Baluchi and have special costumes and cuisine.

Travelers all claim Baluchestan has the most friendly and hospitable people. Unfortunately, you may observe poverty in the suburbs and some may not prefer traveling to this province, but you can be sure we take you there in a convenient way. You will see and learn many amazing things that you can’t find in other regions. Based on the climatic conditions, it’s not suggested to go to this area in summers and winters.

The trip starts from Yazd in the evening (7 pm). We move to Zahedan by train and arrive there at 10 a.m. Zahedan is the center of Sistan and Baluchestan Baluchestan Province in Iran. It’s a famous city for the traditional bazaars. In Zahedan, you can find different tropical fruits, enjoy the traditional eastern music in the restaurant and watch how peaceful different ethnic groups live together. The city has an international airport as well.

On the second day, we’ll move toward a city close to Zahedan, called Zabol. You may know Ferdosi, the great Iranian poet. Surprisingly, Zabol is the birth city of the heroes in his Shahnameh (Book of Kings). The distance between Zahedan and Zabol is about 220 k.m. On the way, there are wonderful attractions including the burnt cityHamun Lake and Mount Khaje, which we shouldn’t miss visiting.

The historical records show a civilization arose near Zabol 5000 years ago. In the Qajar era, a British military guy discovered a mass of ashes and other stuff near the hills and named that area the ‘Burnt City’. It was an industrial city with many furnaces to make pots, so lots of ash was massed near the residential area. Also, they used to dig the ground and set a fire inside to prepare their food, so lots of ash was produced by this cuisine. These are the reasons why the city is called Shahr-e Sukhteh, which means the burnt city.

Shahre Sukhteh, known as one of the most developed ancient cities of the world, was a governmental and peaceful city without any wars. It’s old as the Jiroft Civilization and early Bronze Age of Sistan and located on the Hirmand River bank and close to the Hamun Lake.

The other spot we will visit is Hamun Lake, the seventh-largest lake in the world. This lake consists of 3 smaller lakes and when the water increases, they’ll form one large lake. As the water level differs, most lands nearby are swampy. Bushes and thistles are the only plant types grow in the area. Based on Zoroastrian myths, the advent of Soshyant, the eschatological savior happens near this lake.

The Mount Khajeh is located near Hamoun Lake 30 km away from Zabol. As there’s the tomb of Khaje Mahdi on top of the mount, it’s called Mount Khajeh. In old Persian, the great men used to be called Khajeh. Its altitude is about 609 meters up the sea level. When there was more water in this area, Mount Khajeh was like an island in the middle of Hamoun Lake.

A Sassanid adobe castle also lies in this mount. Although some parts were destroyed, you can see its architecture and facade. The discovered items in this mount are the colorful wall paintings of great men’s portraits and some braziers.

We will return to Zahedan in the evening. On the third day, we will leave Zahedan at 8 a.m and move to Chabahar by bus. The distance between these two cities is 635 k.m. Chabahar is a harbor city close to the Indian ocean. It’s a significant free commercial zone due to its strategic location. You can enjoy many attractions and traditional seafood restaurants in Chabahar.

On the fourth day, we will visit the Ramin Fishing Jetty. Watching cruises and boats on the coastline is spectacular. Observing the methods of fishing and shrimping can be interesting. Ramin Fishing Jetty is one of the most beautiful jetties in Iran. Our next stop is near Chabahar’s Pink Lake in Lipar Lagoon. You probably wonder what have made this lake pink and eye-catching. The reason is simply the existence of planktons. The combination of pink water, rocks, and the beach makes this area very picturesque. We will also visit the sacred fig tree and Beris Fishing Port.

Driving ahead on the Chabahar Road, we will reach Govater Port next to the Gulf of Oman. It’s an appropriate habitat for many plants and animals. Watching the sea tide in Chabahar is another attraction which amazes travelers. Mangrove Forests of Gowatr hide under the water twice a day. Here’s one of the most wonderful natural tourist attractions and the most valuable habitat of birds and fishes.

On the fifth day, we will go to the traditional bazaar of Chabahar, Konarak Port and Pozm Tiyab Rocky Beach. Then, we will fly to Tehran. The other option is starting the trip from Kerman and move to Zahedan by train at night. The distance is about 512 km and we will arrive in Zahedan at 10 a.m. The plan is the same as described. In case it’s possible, we will visit Marsh Crocodile on the way to Chabahar.

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!

I loved everything about this trip

I loved everything about this trip. The guide, the small tour group and every single location picking was well-considered. We have seen it all in 5 days. I highly recommend skipping the bazaar and rushing into the gulf and relaxing in the sea as it is a great way to see a lot of this beautiful country.

Excellent aventure next to the sea

We hop on the train from Yazd to get to our guide in Zabol. He entertained us through this well- organized and wonderful trip. He provided valuable advice and information about the province and the local neighborhood as we arrived. We had plenty of extra time by ourselves to explore the city as he clearly gave us space to enjoy the trip. Mangrove forests, the pink lake and fishing jetty along with the stay next to the sea created a most memorable experience for us.

glaourious highlands

I can not say enough about our guide, ali. Has to be one of the best people I have met on my trips. His kindness and professional attitude towards us as a guide were superb and his storytelling was incredible. You just feel you are a part of his stories as he talks about them. Zahedan is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and it such a treat to share it with ali and tappersia. I highly recommend this guy. Love you

marvellous experience

We had a wonderful time in Chabahar. Never have i ever thought of traveling to the south west of Iran with a group of travelers but oh my .. oh my. The experience was incredible. It was a mix of cultural experience with a pinch of history lessons from our guide. Thanks to tappersia we had visited the oman gulf and burnt city, aside from gazing at stars at nights and window shopping in the bazaar. We almost lost our hearts there. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

great tour

Everything was organized very well. We were a group of 6 people and always were in the same accommodation. The accommodations were all good, especially the B&B next to the sea in Chabahar was wonderful. Very nice host and food too! The tour to the pink lake and bazaar clouded our ability to talk. Couldn’t take our eyes off those colorful dresses handmade by women. WOW. I hope I come back right on time and travel again with you tappersia!
