Last month, on September 7th, a true human being, a nature lover, a wonderful writer and photographer (www.azadkooh.blogspot.com), a discoverer of the deserts and natural beauties of Iran and a very dear friend was lost in Trishuli River in Nepal while kayaking.


Abbas Jafari, a professional mountain climber and an adventurer left us with the hope that he’ll come back some day.

I feel good to be among those who have been fortunate to recognize his gentle heart and had the honor to be accepted as one of his friends. However, I am trying to fade my deep sadness by thinking that if he had the choice, this would have been his way: becoming one with nature he cherished, loved and took so much care of.

I’m happy for you Abbas .

Iran's Kavirs and mountains miss him badly too.

He seems to have had a spirit as big as the mountains he climbed.  Thank you for introducing him to us.
