Fandoqlu Forest

Scheduled to visit Iran? Great, here is another spectacular location you can add to your list of places to check out; the Fandoqlu Forest. This alluring forest which is located between the two bordering provinces of Ardebil and Gilan in the northern side of Iran has all the makings of a great tourist area. If you are not already familiar with these two beautiful provinces you should know that while both have fantastic tourist attractions, Gilan Province wins the prize for the number of resorts, tours, visitors and the overall popularity as an established and well-known tourist area not just inside the country but in the whole Middle East region. So while you can go the Fandoqlu Forest from both Ardebil and Gilan, it makes sense that Gilan would provide an easier trip. In any case, if you happened to be in Ardebil, you can reach the Forest 30 KM from Ardebil City, and 10 KM from the Namin County in the eastern side of the Province; so, from the Ardebil City it would mean a 10-dollar taxi ride to the forest. This heavenly forest which happens to be one of the many Gilan tourist attractions can be reached from Gilan in a variety of ways like joining one of the special Gilan tours or Gilan trekking tours which could involve a visit to the forest.

 

Fandoqlu Forest

But what is it that makes Fandoqlu Forest a sight to behold? Well, in one word, hazels. This amazing area is filled with hazel trees and that is what the name Fandoqlu (meaning “of hazel”) stems from. But that is not all. A variety of other types of fruits and trees add to the beauty of this scenic location; quinces, strawberries, raspberries, wild apples, green tomatoes, hornbeams, beech, pussy willows and chest-leaved oaks provide all kinds of captivating aromas, tastes, scenes and ultimately feelings which would have you forget all about the craziness of our digital world in no time and with no effort. It would be remiss if we do not mention the gorgeous birds such as pheasants, partridges and golden eagles that live there as well. This fantastic jungle is divided into three sections, the Small Fandoqlu, the Great Fandoqlu and the median fields that fill up the 700 meter area between the other two parts. This lovely area has other perks that add to the overall experience of the visitors; for instance, there is the Meshe Sui Hot Spring inside the jungle with its therapeutic benefits that make it ideal for recovering from fatigue, jetlag, and also relaxation and meditation. There is also a waterfall, a tele-cabin (called Fandoqlu-Heyran), and a resort in the jungle that could accommodate the visitors for a couple of days in the forest. The Fandoqlu Forest which is geographically considered as the continuation of the subtropical forests of Gilan and is situated near the Astara-Ardebil Road and the mesmerizing Heyran County of Gilan Province is best visited during spring until mid-autumn.
