This summer (2007) my friend Reza Kianian invited me to join him, his family and friends to go to the site of filming of his new film directed by Mr. Bahman Frmanara. The location is called Dasht-e Saqayeq although by the time we got there the season of flowering was almost over. the site was a beauty nevertheless. It is located 50 kl. north-east of Tehran near the city of Damavand. You take the Haraz road and make a left turn at Imam Zadeh Hashem before entering Damavand. On your way you will see the mighty mount Damavand. The location we went to was interesting, beside its beauty, in that beside the filming group there was a bus load of people practicing Yoga. Enjoy.
