One of the most important factors before traveling is to check the weather. Choosing the best destination based on the season can help you to enjoy the trip more. As Iran is a large country and vast in length, you can see different climates throughout the region.

Cool hills, magnificent mountains, and natural waterfalls can give you the experience of a wonderful journey, as you feel it’s spring instead of summer. Lorestan has 12% of the whole country’s water, it can be one of the main reasons that this city is amazingly cool. If you choose Lorestan for traveling, you can accommodate in Borujerd, Pol-e Dokhtar, Dorud, Nurabad, Delfan, Selseleh or Khoram Abad.
Lorestan is not attractive only because of the unique nature, but it’s also a city with 4000 years of antiquity. The discovery of many pots and carvings from pre-Median periods testifies this age. So keep in mind to visit historical places in Lorestan as well. Visiting the historical monuments of the ancient period besides prehistoric sites makes your trip perfect.
