Akhlamad Waterfall

The Akhlamad Waterfall is located in the province of Razavi Khorasan in northeastern Iran and is a popular tourist excursion. It is 2 kilometers from the Akhlamad village and 84 kilometers from Mashhad. The waterfall itself is approximately 40 meters tall and is located at the bottom of a valley, surrounded by vertical rocky cliffs measuring up to 300 meters at some points which in turn has consistently attracts rock climbing enthusiasts. The mineral nature of the surrounding rocky terrain has caused the creation of large circular plunge pool directly under the base of the waterfall. The fossils discovered within the mineral deposits dates the area back to the Jurassic Period.
