Thumbs up Masuleh Village, Gilan

Masuleh

Info:

Of all the traditional and unspoiled mountain villages in the Caspian Province of Gilan, Masuleh is the most beautiful. It was founded in the 10th century CE.

The village is 1 050 meters above sea level in the Alborz mountain range, near the southern coast of the Caspian Sea. The village itself has a difference in elevation of 100 meters formed by several irregular levels of terraced cream houses, that appears to have grown out of its surroundings. The flat roof of each level of houses forms a pathway for the level above.

Masouleh is approximately 60 km southwest of Rasht and 25 km west of Fuman.

The climate Is bitterly cold in winter, with snow sometimes reaching three meters deep, but the climate in summer is extremely pleasant and bracing.

Fog is the predominate weather feature of Masouleh.

Great photos. It really looks like Black Sea region of Turkey. Towns are very similar in Turkey and Iran.
