This unique site has various karstic morphologies including caves and waterfalls as well as also salt glaciers. It can not be seen nowhere else in the world and a must visit place if you ask us as well.

Helpful tips

Transportation. To get to Jashak Salt Dome you can use car, tour or taxi which ever you think is more convenient for you. We hitchhiked and it was super easy, however, as we camped there for a night when going back we faced no traffic as this is not a touristic place yet and we had to walk around 6 km to the main road.

We recommend going there with a guide which will also show you some magnificent places. As this is not a touristic place, there are little to no roads and they are not shown on map. To get around you need to be familiar with the location and it can be easy to get lost. Be safe!

Best of luck planning your holidays in Iran!
