2 Days hiking tour of Hezar mountain
Hezar is located in Baft region of Kerman, south-east of Iran and with an elevation of 4500 meters; it is the highest peak in Kerman Province.
In this hiking tour we will explore the southern face of Hezar mountain where the Babzangi village is located. Babzangi has an elevation of 3300m; thus, considered as the highest village in Iran. This high elevation has made this village into something extraordinary; all the green lands, trees, vegetations, hills, water and of course the best part is the village itself.
Babzangi village is one a kind, authentic and original place where most of the houses are still out of stone. Villagers are all warm and hospitable, there is the chance that we can seat beside them and help them with the everyday works like making dairy products.
One of the best tasks we can do is go for a hike outside the village where there are many hills with magical views, streams, a lake, couple of acient graves and etc.
Leaving Kerman early afternoon, we will begin our tour to Babzangi village by about 2 hours of driving.
On our arrival we make our camp our will be guided to our host house (depending on season and preference of the customer). Later we go for a quick tour of the village and surroundings; and lastly we come back to our camp for dinner, night photography and a great camping night.
After the breakfast we will start our second day by exploring the region, we have enough time to enjoy the place as much as we like. Later choose the path to the peak and hike it for couple of hours; the goal is to reach to a not far away spring. On they way back we visit the graves and eat our lunch in our camp. Finally we head to Kerman and will be there in the afternoon.
