Where is the road from Islam to Khalkhal?
Islam is a city in the green province of Gilan and in fact part of the city of Talesh, which is our beautiful source. Finally, our trip ends in Khalkhal, a city south of Ardabil. An imaginative path with unparalleled scenery that makes us forget the habit of looking at the clock and counting kilometers along the way.
The road from Islam to Khalkhal is about 70 km. This means that it takes about 1:30 hours along the way. A short time that, under the influence of its unique nature, will be much less visible to us.
One of the advantages of the Asalem-Khalkhal road is the large number of signposts that we come across along the way. These signs help a lot in finding tourist spots; Places like Lake Village or Nav are definitely worth a visit.
If you are thinking of staying overnight in this summer, feel free! Rooftop houses, sights that you can hardly find anywhere else, and the chirping of sheep at the beginning of the day await you. (Did this sound ring in your ear or did I just hear it?…)
Having a shaky summer location makes it very easy, but unfortunately I could not find it on Google Maps. If you tremble, will you leave us a location in the comments section? Thank you.
6 – Saragah Lake
Peace be upon Khalkhal and all its inexhaustible attractions! There must be a turn, it is the turn of Saragah Lake. A lake that reflects the clear water, embracing the sky and the forest. Without any exaggeration, this lake is really beautiful!
On the way to Saragah Lake, you will pass through the paddy fields, which means that your mind is busy: your eyes are fading, your ears are full of birdsong, your nostrils are full of the smell of rice, and your eyes are sweet with this peace of mind.
This lake is also known as” three-way “or” earth dam “. Another interesting thing I know about this lake is that this small lake is filled by boiling springs at the bottom, which makes the water clear and clear.
But that was not the most interesting thing I said about this pond! It is more interesting to know that this pond is a private property where fish farming is done and in fact it is the source of income for many residents of Saragah village.
Now that you understand this, you will probably understand that boating, fishing, and fishing are prohibited on the lake. In the middle of the road from Islam to Khalkhal, Saragah Lake can also be a good place for you; Because it is possible to rent a cottage and camping.
8 – Lake Neor
Near Khalkhal in Ardabil province, there is a lake in the heart of the Baghro mountain valley called “Lake Nevar”. Nevar, which is located on the way from Islam to Khalkhal, is actually the confluence of two small lakes in the spring.
The depth of this lake is about 5 meters, which means that you have to be a professional swimmer to swim in it.
The good news is that any construction around the lake is prohibited and the area’s environment is seriously protected. One of the beauties that you may have the chance to see in Neur is the sight of migratory birds that choose this lake as their temporary home during certain times of the year.
Are you an animal hunter? If not, I’m much more than happy to meet you. If you are one of them, I must say that bird hunting in Lake Nevar is prohibited and this is under the supervision of the Environmental Protection Agency. In short, do not bother carrying a gun to this area.
Fishing is a virtual pastime that you can experience by Lake Neur. In previous years, there was a chance to catch “seven-colored trout”, but recently, the carp wire should be enough.
There is not much to say about the extraordinary nature of Lake Nevar! “Virgin” is the best word that comes to mind. The flat land by the lake is very suitable for camping and camping. The best time to visit Neur is spring and summer. Of course, do not forget that spring in this area just starts in May and before that it is still cold.
Let me tell you the truth and then I will leave the location for you; The village of Abbasabad, which is close to the lake, has provided good amenities such as hotels and restaurants, which certainly do not exist on the shores of the lake. So when you need, you can visit this village.

9- Diamond neck on the road from Islam to Khalkhal
Diamond neck is the same as wonder neck? No, it is not. Contrary to the prevailing mental imagination, the people of Heyran pass are not located in Ardabil province, but in Astara city and Gilan province. Diamond neck, however, is a different place that we come across in the middle of the road from Islam to Khalkhal.
Diamond Pass is one of the most beautiful crossroads on the Asalem-Khalkhal road, which is a passageway adorned with native summer cottages and green plains. The grazing of sheep and horses is one of the things that makes this scene more vivid. On the way from Islam to Khalkhal, one should keep an eye and watch with a full heart.

10- Shaghayegh plain
If you go to Khalkhal in Islam in May and June, do not miss Shaghayegh plain at all! A plain whose pictures we may have seen many times and we have asked in astonishment: Is this Iran ?!
The beauty of this plain is so great that instead of bothering with words and sentences, I would like to tell you with a little picture:
Shaghayegh plain is so spectacular that you can spend more than a short stop at that time. My suggestion is to experience fresh grilled meat in this area. There are cottages on the edge of this plain that are ready like a butcher to turn fresh meat into delicious kebabs and host you. If you are not a kebab maker, Ash Doogh is another unique option that tastes good.
Since beekeeping is also done in Shaghayegh plain, you will find high quality honey in this area which can be a good souvenir.

11- Mish summer on Asalem-Khalkhal road
To remind you again, the route from Islam to Khalkhal is only 70 km! God knows how all this beauty is placed in such a short path. Mtash summer is another summer of this scenic road, which fortunately has the opportunity to spend the night and stay.
Cottages that are completely away from the atmosphere of city houses. It goes without saying that this difference has its own difficulty and sweetness; For example, there is no water, electricity or gas in these cottages. However, water comes from a source, light from a generator, and gas from a gas canister.
Yet the clouds that come to the back of the hut in the morning, the green earth beneath your feet, the light air that takes your breath away, the people who greet you with the sweet tongue of effort and relax your hands and heart to spend at least one night in the summer. Stay tuned.

12- Khojin village
If you want to see the greenery of one of the villages of Islam to Khalkhal, and you do not have much difficulty, “Khojin village”, also known as “Fiyin”, can be a good destination for you.
The texture of Khojin village is a bit more modern and can be a less painful accommodation. Near this village there is a promenade called “Azno” which is full of beauty. Very spectacular attractions such as natural caves, gardens, springs, plains, mountains, etc., which are all gathered together, should not be easily overlooked.
I was forgetting Khojin’s greenhouse! Large greenhouse where a variety of flowers and plants can be found and is very spectacular.
The village also has three shrines that being in their simple and spiritual atmosphere is not without grace.

10- Round belly
All the flavors on this trip are closest to their true taste. Forget the honey that smells of thyme and chamomile, the kebab made from fresh mutton, the buttermilk soup that is impossible to taste, the charcoal tea whose aroma and flavor are mixed together, and the fruits that are truly organic. In short, the loser of this journey is the one who rejects the food of the breasts.

The technical health of the car is very important in all road trips, but in Islam, Khalkhal is many times more important.
The best time to hit the heart of the road from Islam to Khalkhal
However, I am one of those people who say that every season has its own beauty and one should not look for the best season. But this is not very true of the road from Islam to Khalkhal. This is for several reasons:
- Unfortunately, this road is not very safe and is suitable even in parts without lighting and guardrails. As a result, traveling on this road in rainy and snowy times is not recommended at all.
- Islam owes its beauty to its trees and summers, and summers are a place to stay in hot weather.
- The cold weather in autumn and winter burns so much bone that it definitely affects the quality of your trip and does not allow you to enjoy enough.
70 km of compressed nature!
Islam to Khalkhal is a dream. No matter how much I say, his right will not be fulfilled. It has everything. Plains, mountains, springs, trees, anemones, various animals, local food, unique climate, sea, beach and everything else you have in mind about nature!
You may know of other areas that have all of these features, but certainly not within a short distance of 70 km. Islam to Khalkhal is exactly the son of Gilan and Ardabil, who remembers his blue eyes from his mother and his green body from his father. The same righteous child who is not a flower, but heaven itself!
