Qeshm

I want to start write some series posts about tourism in some cities of Iran. You can know about beautiful places in those cities and of course if you don’t have any good idea for your trip or coming vacation, you can choose one of these cities. Today I start first series about an island, its name – as you see on title – is Qeshm.

Qeshm is the largest island in the Persian Gulf, with rocky coastlines that protects a mountainous and often beautiful interior. The coast is dotted with small villages and towns. Qeshm Island is free duty zone.The simplest way is to get there by Airlines or on a speedboat at Bandar Abbas main harbor. There are lots of them departing each few minutes. The ride takes between 20 to 40 minutes depending on the boat. Unlike Kish Island you need a visa for Iran if you are arriving from another country. Qeshm Island is very long (approximately 150kms from east to west), and its main attractions are far away from each other, and therefore taxis are strongly recommended.

Today I introduce you just 3 very beautiful places from Qeshm.

1- Stars Valley

It has about 2 million years old and it’s the unique masterpiece nature of the island.Stars valley -locals are named it fallen star- is one of the most beautiful effects of erosion on the island that the locals believe, after falling a star and effect of heavy impact, soil rose up then became dry in any shapes.Features and spectacular Star Valley led the valley as part of the geopark of Qeshm island included natural monuments in the UNESCO to be registered. Qeshm geopark with beautiful natural and historical monuments is the only geopark in the Middle East .

2-Xarbes Caves

This cave is remains of the large village Xarbes that now completely destroyed and except cemeteries and a lake, nothing isn’t left of it.This village at least until 1400 years ago,was a good place for life, explorers and ship guards.They are series of interconnected caves, originally formed by geologic erosion and expanded by human back to the Median age (1,000 B.C) continued up to recent centuries. Many different applications are considered for the caves, from somewhere for sheltering from pirates to somewhere for worshiping Gods; Xarbes is also said to be an ancient Mithraism temple and its original name was probably Xorpas (Xor=Sun & Pas=Guard). There are some cravings of holy ancient symbols inside the caves.
Xarbes caves are one of the Qeshm Island’s main tourist attractions.
