(Persia Digest) – A popular attraction in eastern Iran is the Ladiz cave, waterfall, river, and fort. Next to Iran’s fourth highest peak in the desert, this place is visited by many for its fresh mineral waters and pristine landscape.
The cave is in Mir-Javeh in Sistan & Baluchistan Province and dates back to 7000 years ago. It measures six meters in height at the entrance and over 20 meters in length. The height varies throughout the cave; it is higher in places and reaches to below four meters in others.
The nearest village, also called Ladiz, is 1200 meters above sea-level. It has a warm, dry climate and the autumns, winters, and early springs are temperate and pleasant. But, the summers are hot. The river runs through the northern part of the village. The combination of the waterfall and cave in this area has turned it into a recreational area for families.
The seasonal rivers of Ladiz and the surrounding greenery and nature, especially in the spring and summer, provide a pleasant surrounding for holidaymakers.
Ladiz village is also on the foothills of Taftan Peak and enjoys exquisite landscapes for nature lovers and attracts many climbers every year to the mountain in southeastern Iran.
