For genuine and passionate nature seeker, Shahrud is the magnetic destination. More they see it, more they will find all the aspects of nature right from the mountains, deserts to rivers, springs and greeneries.

Almost all the passageways in the city are lined with strong plane trees. If you organize your tour  in the month of autumn, you will have to face a lot of  dreamy, passionate landscapes. The pavements are packed with enchanting shrubbery in eye-catching  colors and you will be delighted in your light stroll in the postcard landscape while relishing  the rustling sound of the dried leaves under your feet.

The most crowded city in the province, Shahrud, spread out on the southern slants of Alborz mountain range, has abandoned on its fringe. Therefore, on its north, it is more moist with plenty rainfalls and hot to the south.

Before, the planned location of the city on the Silk Road made it an important halt for merchants and traders. The thriving of the city essentially took place after the kingdom of Fathali Shah Qajar.

Ever since Shahrud has introduced itself as a must-see place; enough water resources, green fields, copious orchards and agricultural lands, backcloth of mountains and convenient road links, all, make it a worthwhile site.

Never decide to leave Shahrud without a visit to Clouds Forests; a dreamy, romantic land where you as if to feel clouds or even to travel white-gray-hued clouds carriages that will take you to the forest hub. The Sky and the earth are seems to mixed here.

Mojen Village should never be missed.  The spectacular construction of houses will remind you of Masooleh in north, pleasant and compelling landscape of waterfalls by creating a feeling of paradise.

Kharturan Natinal Park, Qal’e Bala Village, adjacent to Kharturan, Sunflower garden, Anemones garden , Yaghmai House etc should never be missed in any way.

Never decide to leave Shahrud without a visit to Clouds Forests; a dreamy, romantic land where you seem to touch clouds or even to ride white-gray-hued clouds carriages to take you to the heart of the forest. Sky and earth are seemingly mixed here.

Mojen Village is another must-do here; the spectacular architecture of houses in a stepped terrain, reminding you of Masooleh in north, delightful and mesmerizing scenery of waterfalls through create an impression of worldly paradise. The 7-hued spring, rare in Iran, 25 km north of Shahrud seems like a creative painting on a spellbinding natural canvas.

Kharturan Natinal Park, rightly termed as Iran’s Africa, unfolds a roll of wondrous lands before the eyes of visitors.

Qal’e Bala Village, adjacent to Kharturan, stretches upon a satire-design land and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding fields.

Sunflower garden is my favorite part; an astonishing sight with yellow sunflowers. As far as eyes could see there are beautiful flowers which turn in direction of the sun. Blossoming time is in September.

Anemones garden is another nice alternative for flower lovers; visit times are in spring.

Yaghmai House is the only building with a wind catcher in the whole city. Official hours can be arranged for a close up view.

Shahrud Museum, once Baladia, exhibits ancient items.

Shaikh Abul-Hassan Kharaqāni’s tomb, 24 km from Shahrud, stands atop a green hill. Born in 963,  he was a prominent mystic.

Shahrud’s bazaar is a spotlight for shopaholic and non-shopaholic travelers. You will come across many artistic items while enjoying the admirable architecture.

Masjed-e Agha Shahrud, a mosque from the Qajar era, is a landmark which shouldn’t be missed.
