Four-season land of hospitality

Iran lies between the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea in the south and north, the Alborz and Zagros Mountain ranges in the north and west and has two deserts,Markazi and Lut, at its heart. The hottest spot on earth has been identified in Lut Desert where temperatures reach 70.7 °C.

Blossoms mark the start of spring in Iran

This geographical situation has made Iran dry and warm in its central parts, hot and humid near the Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf, and cold in the northwest and areas close to the mountains. This geographical variety has resulted in the country experiencing four seasons often at the same time.

This has also contributed to the unique landscape of the country, bestowing upon it long winding rivers, captivating waterfalls, aquatic caves, snow-topped mountains, lush valleys, golden deserts and green forests which are thousands and sometimes millions of years old. One of the many natural treasures of Iran is the Caspian Hyrcanian Mixed Forests, which have survived from the Tertiary. The lush landscape of these ancient forests captivates all with their relic and endemic plant species. These forests were once the habitant of the now extinct Caspian Tiger and are considered a living museum that showcases the evolution of plant and animal lives over 40 million years.

There is a Persian saying that guests bring with them bread and blessing to the Sofreh (table spread where food is set) of the host. The importance of the Sofreh and its blessing to Iranians highlights the significance of the culture of hospitality among them.

Accounts given by adventurers, explorers of the ancient world and modern travelers about their journey to Persia/Iran each detail the graciousness, warmth and hospitality of Iranians and often urge others to visit this mysterious land. In Persian literature there are numerous examples encouraging the importance of hospitality to familiars and strangers alike. These values have been passed down through the words of Persian bards from one generation to the next and are instilled in Iranian children from a young age.

Winter. Dizin,Iran.

This is perhaps one of the reasons behind thousands of years of peaceful coexistence among different nations and ethnicities in the Iranian plateau. What is known today as the Persian culture is the result of the amalgamation of Kurdish, Azeri, Baluch, Lur, Arab, Turkmen and… subcultures. This unique model of peaceful diversity is definitely one of the many reasons that makes Iran great.

A new milestone for toiran.com

 

Office Pic

Because of the importance of content for us, we decided to pursue other ways to make our project stronger. We talked to several different people and film crews about the possibility of making a video. This was when we met Sohrab Shah-Mohammadlou. Sohrab and his brother Kaveh were both environmental activists. They knew a lot about Iran’s wildlife and nature.  We saw some of their work; they had made beautiful videos about Iran’s nature and wildlife and had taste and goals similar to us. We decided to work with this team and for the first video, we asked them to make a short film about Shemshak, Dizin and Darbandsar to show the world these three ski resorts, which are popular in winter and hangout spots during the warmer months of the year. The result was a spectacular video that went from summer to winter and showed life in these three resorts, which are only 45 minutes from Tehran. The video became a hit on YouTube and was shared hundreds of times on various social media platforms. We were proud to have created such a professional video about Iran and excited about making more videos about Iran. We hope our next videos will be shared thousands of times.

Next week we have a surprise for you, so stay tuned for news about it on Life.

A short video introduction to the three most popular ski resorts in Iran: Dizin, Shemshak and Darbandsar. These three resorts are frequented by Iranians and international skiers during winter.

Dizin is the largest ski resort in Iran and one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world with a ski season that lasts from mid-November to mid-May.

Shemshak is the second largest ski resort in Iran and usually attracts more advanced skiers.

Darbandsar is one of the newest ski resorts in Iran and the second most challenging resort in the region after Shemshak.

Mysterious Iran awaits you!
