The heights of Zagros and Alborz have mild weather in summer. The Land of Four Seasons means one can go skiing in the northern mountains and swimming in the southern waters, or explore the desert, in the same season.
The Wildlife of Iran -as we have written about it thoroughly in its blog- includes leopards, bears, mouflon, ibex, Persian zebra, and wild boars. Studies have revealed the presence of a noticeable wide variety of reptiles like crocodiles and turtles. Some 200 species of fish live in the Persian Gulf. Sturgeon is one of 30 species found in the Caspian Sea.

A substance that enriches a nation and influences others, like Greece, China, and Iran. In the late 4th and early 3rd millennia, BC Elamite civilization rose in Khuzestan, in the South-west of Iran Plateau. In the late 2nd millennia BC, the Aryans sat foot in the plateau and named it Iran.
