Ghalebala, the entrance gate of Tooran national park (Bhiarjomnd, Semnan province, AND)

Semnan province can be considered one of the significant provinces of Iran. The mysterious central desert as well as Alborz mountain chain have caused a special geographical and species diversity in this area. One of the must-see villages with proper touristic facilities in this province is Ghale-bala that was the main destination of our trip ending up in Tooran national park.

going hundreds of kilometers to Gale-bala

In the one of the November’s sunny morning, aiming to visiting unseens, we were driving in the eastern roads of Tehran where we had started our trip. In the beginning of a holiday Tehran is not as crowded as always and after two hours we reachedDehnamakinn. The renovated inn from the Safaviandynasty is now famous and popular among people. The inn is deserted and warm sun light is so enjoyable. We had breakfast in the porch so that feeling the atmosphere.

There are number of telescopes locating in the inn suitable for watching night sky. It is around 540 kilometers to Ghalebalafrom Tehran and in order to reach there you have to go through Garmsar, Semnan, Damghan, Shahrood, Miami and finally Biarjomand. It takes about 7 hours if you take enough rest and observe all the speed restrictions.

Ghalebala’s neighbors

In the national division of Iran,Ghalebala is associated with Shahrood county. It is around 140 KM from Shahrood the central city of the county. We passed through Biarjomand and in the weekend it is not crowded, Biarjomand is the biggest village and the most important one in the area. Road signs guided us toward Ghalebala it is as long as 22 KM approximately. Along road toward south a mountain chain could be seen. Two village Ghaleahmad and Ghalebala were visible in the foothills from distant. In the middle of night, if you see toward north from Ghalebala’s houses, other villages are like bright islands in the middle of vast dark sea, the largest and the most distant one is Biarjomand.

Roaming in Ghalebala’s pathways

During tourism development, more than 6 historic places have been renovated and turned into Eco-tourism resort. I had already been familiar with some of them and we finally stayed in the Arg of Ghalebala. With the help of local’s kids, we walked through narrow cobblestone alleys until reaching the Arg hostel. It is almost the highest point of the village, from there, a spectacular scenery of autumn sun set with the pale and weak light on the houses was so impressing. Although fetching twice due to carry all the things especially my little boy Sahand’s staffs, it was definitely worth it as there was a beautiful view. The roof of the touristic resort as well as balconies are highly suitable for sitting and enjoying the atmosphere while feeling the cool breeze blowing toward your face.

As soon as arriving at the place, we planned for the next day using Mr. Keyghobadi’s advice and he accepted to guide and drive us in the Tooran national park with his 4WD SUV; it was predictable to be an invaluable experience.

Then, we spent all the evening roaming in the village, it was so quiet and there is no dead end amongst alleys. Being unfamiliar with the village, we are interested in discovering all the path ways; it sounds like a maze. Shops and bakery are lined in both sides of the main street where we’d parked our car.

In the next day, Mr. Keyghobadi was on time, right at 7:30 AM he was waiting us. We were supposed to be alone, however, two other vehicles with visitors were on the road. Just near the village when we were waiting for driver, suddenly we saw our first incredible moment, a large group of rams and ewes (wild sheep). Safe and secured environment make wild animals confident enough to come close to village; villagers are well aware that these animals as natural assets encourage tourism industry leading to their financial benefit. In fact, Ghalebala is the entrance gate of Tooran national park.

We went up the hairpin turn and then decreased elevation toward Delbar (an area in the national park). There is an eco-tourism resort near Delbar, it could be interesting spending a night there.

We were getting approach to Environmental monitoring center to get entrance permission

Mr. Faalpour a park ranger came with our three-vehicle group, a dirt road guided us to the middle of the park.

Zygophyllum a flowering plant can be easily seen along road. We were hopeful to see Persian onager,all of sudden a massive group of Persian onager were running uphill at distant, it was hard to see them by eyes. Unfortunately, our attempt to see Persian ground jay was unsuccessful.

A chinkara after seeing us escaped through plants. Visiting and discovering wildlife in the Tooran national park would be really enjoyable. The visiting path is a circle and it will be ended up in Delbar again.
