Until you approach Saravan Lake, you will not notice the water area of ​​this lake and you will see it like a green land. But approaching it and seeing the first boat moving smoothly on the lake’s green bed reveals everything.

The forest roads of Saravan Dalani are towards heaven. The attempt of the sun’s rays to pass through the dense branches of its towering trees is spectacular. The color of the leaves of these trees varies according to the season, and in autumn a variety of fiery colors settle on the branches. 

Driving on this dreamy road or going to the heart of the forest and walking among the fences of these tall trees conveys a feeling of calm to the soul. The greenery of this ancient Gilani forest is full of a variety of special plants that have made its soil valuable.

One of the most enjoyable parts of this hike is the approach to the river and the extinction along it. Sefidrood and Siahroud rivers have a great share in the beauty of this forest park. After the pleasure of watching and being with them should not be neglected.

Complete the relaxation and enjoyment of boating with a forest picnic and make time to sit and watch the gathering of the trees.

The amusements of this park are not only relaxing; There is excitement too! Four-wheeled motorcycles for hiking are a very fun option for thrill-seekers. But if you are into challenge and competition, we suggest you try paintball in Saravan. Saravan Park is the first forest in northern Iran to be equipped with a paintball field.
