Raghz Canyon; bride of the valleys of Fars Province

Tehran, March 14, IRNA - It is regarded as the bride of the blue valleys, a canyon that is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and untouched landscapes in the South Zagros Mountains. In Raghz, more than anything, the roar of rivers and waterfalls can be heard.

At a distance of 30 km northeast of Darab, a city in Fars province that stretches along the elevated peaks of Zagros mountains, there is a wonderful strait called Raghz in the Fasarood region. Raghz, which means an untouched and slippery road, is also known as Rudkhiz among the natives of the region. It is located near the tourist villages of Shamsabad and Hassanabad and stretches from north to south for approximately four kilometers.

*** valley of roaring waterfalls 

Raghz Canyon is irrigated by the blessing waters. The name of the river comes from the fact that it has more than 60 waterfalls and 100 natural ponds in its heart. However, the difficulty of the road and the need for mountaineering equipment to reach all the waterfalls and ponds have kept most of them from out of the reach of the tourists. Derakhshesh waterfall, Veda’a waterfall, Kabootar waterfall with a height of 65, 46 and 25 meters respectively are among the highest of Raghz. Negin, Boom Rang, Damagheh, Hekmat, Fath and Massoud are other famous waterfalls of this canyon.
