Darreh Khazineh, Iran’s Tourist Hub in Lorestan

Thursday, August 31, 2017 - 10:56

A steep canyon in the Lorestan province, western Iran, is a place where people cross an elevated suspension bridge that spans the Khazineh valley.

This 112-meter-long bridge is the highest-mounted one in the Middle East with an altitude of more than 85 meters over Seymareh River.

The bridge is named after the Khazineh village, itself a tourist hub which can be accessed by traversing 47 kilometers of the Andimeshk road from the Pol-e-Dokhtar township. Two kilometers away from the Karkhe-2 site, the bridge can be visited.

Lorestan province, in the middle of the Zagros mountain range, acts as a gateway to the sweltering plains below the adjoining Khuzestan province.
