Gorgan

— 2 nights
Gorgan NameThe Modern Persian word Gorgān () is derived from Middle Persian Gurgān, itself from Old Persian Varkāna, the Achaemenid satrapy southeast of Caspian Sea (encompassed all of the present day Golestan Province, as well as some eastern parts of the Mazandaran province, and some southern parts of the modern-day Turkmenistan), which is reflected in Greek sources as Hyrcania, Hyrcani or Hyrcana. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gorgan: Bayazid Bastami Tomb (in Bastam) and Abr Forest (in Abr). There's still lots to do: get outside with Naahar Khoran, examine the collection at Gorgan museum, admire the sheer force of Kaboudwal Waterfall, and look for all kinds of wild species at Alangdareh Park.
