Jahan Nama Protected Area
A tranquil village far from hustle and bustle of modern cities, Jahan Nama reminds tourists of the pristine landscapes in the Alps Mountain and gorgeous Switzerland countryside. Stretching in an area of 31,747 hectares and 3086 m above sea level, the preserved area offers the freshest verdant forests and outstanding wildlife haven.
Pioneered by Golestan National Park, it is the broadest conserved area in the province, organized by the Environment Organization since 1973 .
Among the oldest forests in the world, the Caspian Hyrcanian Forests, millions years old, signifies the geologic importance of the region.
Adventure seekers and backpackers will relish their clambering and exploring. Nothing would ever be more gratifying than conquering the highest lands and enjoying the magnificent views of the surrounding regions. Jahan Nama offers a panoramic view of the nearby towns of Kordkooy, Gorgan and Bandar-e Turkaman. If you are only interested in fresh air and are not into challenging activities, just stroll around the lush fields and fill up your lungs in cool air, a huge miss in urban areas.
Walk around to explore all the beauties of the untouched land; ask locals for directions to numerous cool springs here to take an exhilarating dip in cool waters.
Exploring the valleys is another fun thing here. But make sure to do it with a guide. In its meadows you will see herds of cattle, and flocks of sheep and horses. Here you can see three distinct colors, white clouds, green forests and brownish rocks in one place. The place is sometimes imposingly covered in dense fog, creating a picturesque view. The charming attraction allows for many snapshots.
Showcasing indigenous and traditional architecture, the land does not involve luxurious houses. Yet, you will fall in love with the plain cottages and comfortable houses.
