Iranian Delicious Cuisines
Due to its ethnic diversity, various types of delicious foods are also cooked in Iran.

Ideal Adventurous Locations in Iran
If you are looking for adventure and/or if you are interested in doubling the excitement of Iran travel, you can pay visit to those places worth the adventure.
A desert called Rig-e Jenn is known as Iranian Bermuda Triangle, and locals consider the desert as being cursed; because, no body returns back alive from there. This is one of the locations enjoyed by those looking for adventures so that real excitement would be felt by them. Of course, this has to be remembered that taking plenty of water with you and taking advantage of local guides who are familiar with the path is a must; because of sludge and mud swamps not recognizable due to their color being the same as the desert itself.
If satisfying your sense of curiosity in desert is not enjoyable and you are looking for excitement in jungle and river; you have to travel to Sarborj Jungle in Sarborj Village near Mashhad. It has been several years since the time that whistling and screaming sounds began to be heard in the jungle, with no identified origin.
Interestingly, previously such sounds have not been heard in the jungle and it is about 9 years since they have been first heard. More interestingly, previously the river passing through the jungle was dry for several months a year. However, since the time that the sounds have begun to be heard; turning to a flowing river, it has not become dried up.
