GREEN SLICE OF HEAVEN!
If they ask me what is bothering me the most about this whole Corona pandemic, it’s not having to stay at home. Thankfully I am privileged enough to have a roof over my head, food to put on the table, and can generally afford to stay at home and do nothing without having to worry about anything else.
It’s astonishing for me to see so many people complain about having to stay at home, when they are privileged enough to be able to do so in the first place. Or else you hardly ever see those who have a hard time making ends meet, ever complain about simply staying at home. That’s the least of their problems.
But while I’m not at all complaining, if there is one thing that I miss being able to do, it’s to travel in Iran during this time of the year. Iran has very beautiful nature all year round, but some of the views that you see during the spring are unimaginably beautiful and unlike anything you will ever see in any other time of the year. One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my entire life during the spring is the gorgeous alpine region of Dehdez in the Zagros Mountains of Khuzestan province southwestern Iran.
Usually when people, including Iranians, hear about Khuzestan, the first thing that comes to their mind is a hot, arid, dusty, war-torn place that they would never want to visit. And I’m sure the last place most of you would have thought this place to be is somewhere not too far from the hot year-round regions along the Persian Gulf. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Much of Khuzestan has some of the most amazing alpine views you could ever imagine to see anywhere in the world. You can see the snowcapped mountains, while it was around 46 degrees celsius only around 50km away in the city of Izeh.
Where’s the most beautiful place you’ve seen that you have to see during the spring?
