Khustan's cities are really beautiful and ancient.

Khuzestan, one of the centres of the earliest civilizations, is a marvelous travel destination and off the beaten tracks.It is a great opportunity to see a bit of world with monuments from 4th millennium BC to the modern day along with its large permanent rivers flow over the entire province contributing to the fertility of the land

Mountains, deserts, jungles, rivers and lakes, people of different races, languages, cultures, monuments that boast history, stories of war, of defense, sacrifice, colonization and the greed for oil wrap up one of the most diverse provinces of Iran. Khuzestan has been the pinnacle of my travels through Iran and for good reason. Travelling through Iran is full of surprises, but Khuzestan seemed to have a full pack of them waiting in every corner.
