4.5
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Gilan Province
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.
