A very common route for visiting Iran, begins in Tehran and continues to Kashan, Isfahan, Shiraz and Yazd. But if you’re a little more curious and are looking for excitement in your trip, you’d probably like to explore some more pure locations.
Taft is one of the most peaceful cities in Iran and of course, it has a lot to show you. The City of Taft, which means “Basket of Fruit”, is surrounded by mountains, has very pleasant and clean weather and is full of pomegranate gardens. This beautiful city has some international residents as well, such as Indians. So you have the opportunity to experience their cuisine, as well as seeing different cultures.
Furthermore, lots of Zoroastrian families live in Taft and its vicinity. So you can find Towers of Silence, Cypress Trees, Fire Temples and so much more in this area.
When talking about Taft, the name of Nartitee Ecolodge is really bold, both as a peaceful accommodation, as well as a place for social gatherings and simply having fun.
This 100 years old ancestral house, has been renovated to accommodate guests in a humble atmosphere which might your most favorite stay through your Iran trip. Apart from the standards, Nartitee is all about the true spirit of Persian hospitality. While you can pick your own fresh fruits from their garden and find peace and serenity like no other place, reach Yazd city center in 20 min by taxi (about 2 euros), you can be sure that Ramtin and Tina will take care of you like a family.
If you’re a trekker it will be a jackpot for you since Shirkooh (4000 m) is quiet close.
Story and history telling, Bike renting, experiencing the dessert night silence with full of star sky, visiting Zurkhaneh rituals, getting stuffed with Iranian and Zoroastrian’s traditional foods are some of the things you will experience there.
