In the middle of summer one of the most well-known fireworks of the sky reaches its peak. The meteor shower is one of the most appealing rains of the year, and now is the time to reach its peak.

For those who love the wonderful world of the sky night, the name of a meteor shower is a familiar name. This phenomenon is one of the most famous and, at the same time, the most abundant annual rainfall that reaches a peak in the second decade of August. In conditions away from light pollution and under the dark sky and at peak times, observers usually see between 60 and 100 meteors per hour; but this year we may have been a bit luckier than ever before. Some predictions suggest that we may see a meteorite in this year’s rainfall.

And Now…

You have this chance to watch it closely, from one of the clearest points.

Thousands of professional and amateur astronomers are looking for places where they can watch the sky at night and day; places with low pollution, clear sky, and high altitude!

The Meteor shower always brings one of the most beautiful moments of creation, but watching the last moments of the presence of this magnificent creation jewel alongside Iranian nomads in Sangesar has its own unique pleasure.

The pure and naive sense of nomads lifestyle would captivate you. You maybe absorb in beauties of all-around so that you totally forget to record or wish on stars falling moments. No worries, we will record all joyful moments for you.

Kharturan Village

Kharturan Protected Area is a very suitable region for a short and economic trip, especially in the cold seasons, where a special type of desert, sand, vegetation, rare animals, unusual landscapes of desert villages can be found on this trip. After arriving in Kharturan village. You have two choices:

As the first and most convenient option, you can climb to the village of Qal’eh. By staying in one of the indigenous settlements of this village, you will experience the pleasure of living in rural homes, the taste of local and organic dishes with animal oil and local bread. Take a visit to the several hundred-year-old baths or water-filled aqueducts in the area, discover beautiful scenery for photography, and be amazed at the hospitality of the area.

And the second option:

You can take the road to your home 70 kilometers further and reach the village of Ahmadabad after about 1 hour. One kilometer left to Ahmedabad, a road to the left, separated from the village of Reza Abad (it was about thirty kilometers to Reza Abad, but it also went by car). If you are looking to see landscapes that are free of vegetation and sand, go to Reza Abad. Mud sand has come to the edge of the village and created a very beautiful view.

Stay tuned in the same village of Ahmadabad if you are looking for a quieter place with easier access. As you go out of the village, you enter into sandy soils, but if you take the salt barrel away and get around 5 km away from the village, it would be a pretty, secluded place. The sand dunes are full of arches and grass shrubs that stop the desert from spreading.
