Rosewater Festival is a tradition among Persian people who celebrate in between April 8th and May 20th, when the pink flowers of Damask Roses bloom to spread the scent of spring, particularly in the cities like Ghamsar and Niasar. Keeping that in mind, can you resist the temptation to experience such a festival in which local people bond with the emblems of nature? In this festival, the local people of Kashan extract the essence of nature and its beauty to demonstrate such commitment by passing it on to the fabric of their lives. Join us to observe the process of such sacrosanct effort and partake in celebrating this ancient tradition.

We will start our one-day expedition in Niasar. The locals who are getting ready to follow this traditional custom will gladly invite you to accompany them in the next 6 hours.
You’ll feel and experience what these locals feel between themselves and nature and you’ll definitely lose your soul to the mesmerizing smell of Damask roses while you learn the right way of picking them.
You’ll learn the ancient formula inherited through generations and observe the traditional process and appliances used for the extraction of rose water.
(note that you can also embark on this exceptional experience from Tehran or other cities of the country; you just need to let us know beforehand)
We will then take a tour of the surrounding landscapes and listen to the deep sound of nature while visiting the Niasar Waterfall. It is a great place with nice weather to reflect on nature and her sweet gifts.
Then, we will visit the Niasar Fire Temple which is a trace of history and the Sassanid Empire on the western heights of Niasar. This Zoroastrian temple is built in a domed “Chahar Taq” structure.
In the last hours of our tour, we’ll visit one of the famous Persian gardens in Kashan. This Safavid garden is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage and enfolds many tourists in its bosom. Being a part of this complex, Fin Bath is the place where the great chancellor of Iran, Amir Kabir, was assassinated by the Nasir al-Din Shah, The Qajar king. Visiting this place is both a reading of Persia’s history and a glimpse of merit lying in Persian gardens.
