The mysterious Kal-e Jeni or the canyon of Jinn!

Kal- e Jeni (canyon of Jinn) is an extremely weird natural attraction located in Azmighan village, around Tabas city in the southern Khorasan province. This silent and lonely canyon is formed by water and wind erosion and shows stunning natural forms. These surreal landscapes and the mysterious sound created when the wind blows through the canyon have led to this belief that this canyon is the territory of Jinn and anyone who steps through this valley alone might be captured by them!

Some small rooms called "Gabr" are carved in the walls of the canyon. Nobody has ever found out what exactly these small rooms in the middle of this never land were used for. Some historians believe that Gabrs were carved by the Zoroastrians during Sassanid era and were used for Chelleh, which is the spiritual practice of silence and praying! There are some tunnels that might have been the connection between the Gabrs.

Kal- e Jeni is still unexplored by many of the travelers and many adventurers don’t even know that such a wonderful attraction exists on earth. The dense palm groves, the scenic desert with hundreds of and dunes and the breathtaking "Golshan Garden of Tabas" are other attractions around the mysterious Kal-e Jeni. Uppersia suggests this area and its unique attractions as one of the perfect winter destinations in Iran.
