Tehran to Kerman

Photo essay

by Maziar Behrooz
This March (Farvardin 1388) my paternal uncle (Amu) Bahman and I took a 2000 kilometer (both ways) trip to the south east of Iran. it was Noruz (new year) and the weather was great, roads were excellent, and the scenery awesome. Amu is a professional photographer so the good pictures are his, enjoy.

As a Kermani descent and especially Ganj Ali family I enjoyed every picture with informative captions. Bagh Shazdeh is a wonderful place to visit. Thank you very much Behrooz....

Thanks for the documentary. I like your feedback about the Narcisus Hotel, "never again". If enough people do that these guys will shape up and start giving good service.

It seems like you had a wonderful trip! Thank you for taking us along and showing us the beauties of Iranian desert cities. I would love to go to Naeen and Meibod some day. Thanks for the heads up on Hotel Nargess! The best thing is to stay with friends or friends of friends! Kermanis are so kind, warm, and hospitable.

P.S. The faloodeh picture was cruel!

One of these days I will take a tour of Iran, and see these sites close- up, in person.  Does anyone know of a good tour company I can hire or tell me which is a better arragment , both economically and qualitatively: fly to Iran first, independendly, and purchase a land tour there and fly back or buy the complete package including air travel and land tour here in the US.


Great Kerman!

Thank you for sharing pictures of your recent journey in Iran. I
have always wished to see Kerman and its historical towns nearby.

The places you have visited on your route from Tehran to
Kerman will be a good guide once I make my way to that region,
hopefully not too far in the future.
