Exploring south of Iran in Christmas time
Posted November 6th, 2013 - 5:50 pm by from Tehran, Iran (Permalink)
Dear CSers,
As I lived and traveled in Scandinavia for a while I got to know about your nice culture and interact between human life and nature.
Now I came back to my country Iran, the land of lion and sun.
This country has different weather temperature in different seasons. For example you can enjoy skiing in some parts in Christmas time while you can enjoy swimming in Persian Gulf in South of Iran with mild weather.
I had a trip from north to south of Iran previous Christmas time with a Finnish friend and now I would like to plan again for one week to ten days hiking, trekking, walking, cycling, swimming in south of Iran in turquoise Persian Gulf shore and in some Islands where is defined as Geopark with some villages and very kind native people who are fishermen and traditional boat makers.
This Island is called Qeshm (the biggest one) and three other smaller around this Island (Larak, Hormoz, Hengam) where has different nature and beauties.
