Kariz Underground, Kish Island

(4.1/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
Descend into the ground and see the works of ancient technology at Kariz Underground. Over two millenniums old, infrastructure still stands as an underground world of hydraulic systems that cleanse the water in the area. Witness the series of wells using coral walls around the qanat to produce filtered water that comes from the mountains. Travel 16 m (52 ft) into the earth to get a good look at the rich underwater life surrounding the island made entirely of coral. When you get tired, you can take a break and sip tea at the underground restaurants or shop for souvenirs in the available gift shops.
