Forests of Golestan Province

Jungle Rango

This area is considered as a forest park and for this reason it is one of the most popular tourist places in Golestan, but to be honest, the forest vegetation in this park is so dense that it looks more like a jungle than a forest park. If you want to go to Rango forest, you have to drive 15 km outside the city. Also, in order to reach the Ranju Forest Trail, you have to go through the alleys of the village called Tushan, which is one of the historical and ancient villages in Golestan Province.

In Rango Forest, there is also a waterfall known as Rango Waterfall. Before going to the waterfall, make sure you have the proper equipment and plan because you have several hours of hiking ahead of you from the beginning of the jungle to the Rango waterfall. Don’t forget the proper hiking shoes.

Nagdara Forest

Another sightseeing place in Golestan that attracts tourists is the Nagdara Forest in Golestan with all its trees and facilities. It is best to say from the outset that the story of Nagdara Forest is similar to that of Rango Forest. This is actually the forest park in Nagdara district, but due to the density of trees and greenery, it has been overshadowed by the name of the forest instead of the park.

We reviewed the experience and opinions of the guests and travelers who viewed the Nagadra Forest in Golistan; Many of them confirmed that autumn is one of the best days to explore the Nagdara Forest. Do you know why? Because the combination of autumnal yellows and reds in the tunnels created by the trees flexing above you is not a sight you want to miss.
