Masouleh Village, Masuleh

(110 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Originally established in 1006 CE, Masouleh Village contains houses built into the mountains, with roofs that double up as pedestrian streets. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the village, which prohibits vehicles due to its unique layout, winding walkways, and many staircases. You'll notice many of the houses boasts a yellow clay exterior, which makes them more noticeable in the thick fog common in this area throughout the year.
