Maharloo Lake in Shiraz


Iran is home to many beguiling natural attractions, but its extraordinary pink lake has got to be seen to be believed. Less than a one-hour drive from Shiraz, Lake Maharloo is not only one of Iran’s most accessible lakes but also one of its most photogenic. Its eye-catching view draw amateur and professional photographers alike, moving between hues of pink, white and blue depending on the salinity of the water. For a few years they used to extract salt from the lake but nowadays it is only used for tourism purposes. The water of the lake is otherwise clear and it causes no harm to the human.

It's almost like this photo was deliberately taken for Instagram photos, but Maharloo's pink lake is all natural and has turned rosy again. Although this salt lake already has lots of salt, it only turns pink when salt levels are higher than usual. There are also a few other factors such as high temperatures, lots of sunlight and a lack of rainfall required to turn the lake pink. Especial thanks to our guest, for sharing this eye-catching photo with us.

Ancient Sports

Have you ever wondered about the origin of bodybuilding and fitness? The answer is Iran.
There are so many more sports and activities, many of them traditional to Iran that are still praticed even today. 
Varzesh-e bastani, which literally means ancient sport,  has been inscribed by UNESCO as Pahlevani and Zoorkhaneh . It has been recognized as the world's longest-running form of such training. In this sport, the men not only worked on their physical fitness but they worked to improve their spirituality, and to be more modest, submissive and generous.
If you travel to Iran, perhaps you too can experience one of these sports firsthand whether it's just observing or actually doing.

Iran Green Travel

There are various shades of difference among green travel , responsible travel and sustainable travel, but at the heart of the matter is the importance of protecting the natural and cultural environment of the places you visit. That means conserving plants, wildlife and other resources; respecting local cultures and ways of life; and contributing positively to local communities. Taking a green approach to travel is an easy and essential way to protect the places you love to visit, not just for yourself but for the travelers who come after you and for the people who will continue to live there long after you’ve flown home. 
Green travel in not a passing trend, but a portable lifestyle choice. Travelers can do much more by building a green travel block by block.
