Aerial photos: The beautiful Mazandaran – Iran

aerial-Mazandaran-iran-089-iMazandaran Province is a Caspian province in the north of Iran. The diverse nature of the province features plains, prairies, forests and rainforest stretching from the sandy beaches of the Caspian Sea to the rugged and snowcapped Alborz sierra, including Mount Damavand, one of the highest peaks and volcanos in Asia.


Human habitation in the area dates back at least 75,000 years. Recent excavations in Goher Tippe provide proof that the area has been urbanized for more than 5,000 years. Mazandaran was among the last parts of Persia standing against Muslim conquests.
