DAY 5: FULL DAY TOUR OF QESHM ISLAND

The dazzling Qeshm, the only geo-park in Iran, enjoys numerous geo-sites. We first visit Chahkouh Valley where million years of erosion have created spectacular views, particularly the cavities. Stars Valley is the second site and a must-see in Qeshm. This area was carved out by wind and rain approximately 2 million years ago. In places, the valley is 15m below the surface of the plateau it has eroded from and is adorned with oddly shaped arches, columns and passageways. Its name seems to be derived from the legend that the valley was formed from falling stars. The salt caves are the last place we plan to see.
