It is no doubt that big cities are great. There are lots of amazing things to see and you are likely to find whatever you desire in the world fair of a city. What are you looking for? Entertainment? Technology? Fancy restaurants? Business opportunities? Well, in a metropolis, your only problem would be how to choose between infinite possibilities. But, human beings get bored easily. Not even the high-tech glory of modern cities could pose a threat to humanity’s eternal capacity for boredom. It is only a matter of time till the allure of the metropolis turns into the repulsion of the concrete jungle. Everything gets a stifling and crammed urban hue and as the Russians say: There's no room for an apple to fall! You feel the urgent need of getting a respite from all this madness. And nowhere is better than a village to shed your tension and hassle. Staying in rural areas could be a superb therapeutic experience. It is a return to the origins, to the nature and you have all the time in the world for meditation and self-discovery. This hankering to unshackle oneself from the dark web of the modern city exists all around the world. Many of the largest and most populated cities in the world are in Asia. Take a city like Tehran for instance. It is the definition of a metropolis, with towers, markets, crazy traffic and of course pollution. One needs an occasional break from such a nightmare and the people of Tehran choose the north of Iran for spending their short vacations. But what is there in the north that attracts so many people? First of all, there is the Caspian Sea and a host of other natural wonders like forests, mountains, jungles and etc. But that is not all; the north also boasts some of the most beautiful villages in Iran. People come to these traditional villages and immerse themselves in the fresh weather and the delicious local cuisine. Masuleh is one of the most popular traditional villages in the north of Iran. Located in Fuman County, Masuleh is surrounded by all the wonderful attractions of Gilan Province. Masuleh is also a great favorite of foreign tourists. In addition to great weather and superb natural beauty of the village, what attracts most of the tourists to Masuleh is its peculiar rural architecture. The village is founded on the slopes of a mountain forest in the form of a giant staircase. Most of the houses are painted yellow to make them visible in the foggy days of the mountain. Masuleh is one of the most photographed villages in Iran and you can find hundreds of pictures on the internet. The history of Masuleh began when a group of rural people relocated from an older village to Masuleh. Among the reasons behind this migration was Masuleh’s fame in Iran for great weather and soil. Masuleh tours are very popular. People usually travel to Masuleh with their families and what families need the most is quality accommodation. But there is nothing to worry about, since Masuleh has lovely traditional Iranian hotels. Two of Masuleh’s best cozy little hotels are Mehran and Navid. One last thing we would like to mention here is about our Masuleh Village tours.
