Healing Waters of Sarein

The ever increasing difficulty and cost of travelling abroad have prompted many Iranian tourists to seek for their holiday destinations within the country. One of these newly discovered places is Sarein, in the northwestern corner of Iran, which attracts thousands of visitors from all over the country every summer. Located in a remote valley at the foot of the mighty Mount Sabalan, what used to be a small village with simple peasant houses and mud walls, only a decade ago, has now turned into a town with numerous hotels and service apartments.

The magnet which draws these visitors to Sarein is the warm water bubbling out of eleven springs, the source of which lies beneath Mount Sabalan’s inactive volcano. Rich in a variety of minerals, the waters are believed to have many therapeutic properties besides their soothing, relaxing effect. Another feature which has been well known throughout the country for a much longer time is the aromatic honey produced in local beehives and sold directly to the public.

All this, added with the magnificent view of snow-capped mountain, wild flowers, blue sky and a pleasantly cool climate in the summer, explains the growing popularity of this area. The population of Sarein increases tenfold during the hot season, with visitors not only filling the hotels and multi-storey apartment blocs, but setting up tents in the streets. To feed and entertain them, various amenities such as restaurants, coffee shops, cinemas, theatres, and a ski piste have been provided during recent years. The ski-lifts can take you within minutes from the hot spring waters to a cool lake at the top of the volcanic crater, from where the Caspian Sea can be seen in the distance.

In this multimedia report, we share some of these delightful scenes with visitors to the area.

I think the focus of your article should be more on the therapeutic values of the hot sulfur springs of Sarein and not so much on its "new" buildings and rapid unplanned development of the beautiful old place it used to be. Emphasis should be on the surrounding natural vistas and trekking options and other pleasant villages around Sarein like Viladara. Anyway it was great going through your article and the only one i have found on any website on Sarein. So thanks and keep it up.

به جز مناطق طبیعی بیرون شهر، به نظر من خود شهر طراحی وفضاسازی شهری بسیار بی قواره و زشتی داشت.
