Iran

Iran or officially the Islamic Republic of Iran is a large Middle Eastern country in Western Asia with about 78.4 million inhabitants.

In recent years the name of Iran or Persia as many refer to it, has been associated with an ongoing nuclear dispute and extensive talks with world powers (5 +1) but Iran is much more than that.

It is a geographically diverse country with splendid mountain ranges, vast mystical deserts, alpine forests and green plains. From the shores of the Caspian Sea to the north to the semi-tropical Persian Gulf and Oman Sea to the south, the country has many different climatic conditions with many different cultures, ethnicities and religions to match.

The many cultures and ethnicities have roots in distant times. With some 25 centuries of history Iran has countless monuments and archaeological sites.

History

For many the word Persia conjures up images of carpets, miniatures, ceramics, beautiful architecture and poetry.

The term coined by Herodotus (484 BC) alluded to the region of Fars, the seat of the Achaemenids and was in common use until 20th C when the correct term Iran, as used by the Iranians all along, was introduced to international community.

 

The Achaemenid Empire (6 BC) started it all.

A unifying force, yet respectful of national identities covering lands from the Indus Valley to the Nile Delta, creating a unique multicultural civilisation.

The historian Professor Pope and the philosopher Will Durant have discussed the influences of this empire on the march of the civilisation in great detail.

We are now ready to show you Iran’s glorious past and its continuing civilisation, so start planning your trip today.

Geography

Iran lies between latitudes 24° and 40° N, and longitudes 44° and 64° E and is divided into thirty one provinces.

Its varied terrain and climatic diversity with majestic mountain ranges, dense forests, never-ending deserts, green valleys and coasts offers wide ranging opportunities for those interested in the natural world.

The impossibly blue skies of the central desert are only matched by its night time spectacle of twinkling stars and the sparkling galaxies.

 

The country’s unique fauna and flora attracts those with a scientific eye and animal lovers alike. One can drive deep in to the desert to get a glimpse of the Asiatic wild ass and go on accompanied treks to see the conservation programme to save the Asiatic cheetah.

All this makes Iran a wonderful destination for those interested in natural history and geological curiosities.
