Iran Wild Frontiers (Part 1): Golestan and Tandoureh National Parks
There is the same and even more splendor to the wild frontiers outside the cultural and historical cities of Iran. You might never think of Iran as one of the top destinations in the middle east regarding the diversity of species and the wild ranges and plains it holds within its bosom. But, you just need to step into the unbeaten paths of this country to discover its outstanding and unique wildlife along with the diverse ecosystems it embosoms. There are around 200 protected areas in Iran to preserve the precious biodiversity of this country and there are about 16 National Parks among them that are home to some of our planet’s most incredible species.
Golestan National Park, Kavir National Park, Turan National Park, and Tandoureh National Park are among the top protected areas. Each of these parks encompasses exceptional and unique varieties of flora and fauna in their wild frontiers and in this article, I would tell you about the delightful moments that you can experience in each of them. Notice that all National Parks of Iran are safe to visit but you need a permit to enter any of the National Parks and it’s best to take a tour leader or a ranger with yourself to get close to any of the wild animals you like to see. You can as well trust our leaders as local experts spending years of life in these National Parks in any of our wild tours.
