Kandovan, Tabriz

4.1
See the ancient cave houses of Kandovan, a small village on the slopes of Mt. Sahand. The village attracts visitors with its houses carved into the volcanic stone cliffs, hundreds of years old and still inhabited. Admire the eclectic structures sprawled across the rocky cliffside, eroded into interesting cone-like shapes, home to more than a hundred local families, and equipped with furniture, power, and some even with running water. The village also boasts a rock hotel, where you can stay in a stone-carved room for the night. To visit Kandovan on your trip to Tabriz, use our Tabriz trip itinerary planning tool .

  • A beautiful ex fusion do depyis Tabriz by renting a taxi. Early May the vision of Khandovan from the trees in bloom is superb. The top of the village dug in the Tuff is very interesting. In the background the snowy mountains form a beautiful setting. Avoid certainly jeudu and Friday because the Iranians are certainly getting there.

  • A small village at the end of the world in the mountains, well 2,200 m high located. It's for the holidays and new year's hofflungslos overflowing, but nice to look at sonmst with its tuff cones and their attached houses. Everything reminds of Kapadozien. There are some arts and crafts in the town.
