Deraz-e-Now is a summer and mountainous village in the highest altitudes of Kordkuy in Iran’s Golestan Province, which welcomes many tourists and travelers in all four seasons due to its beautiful and pristine natural environment.

Being located in the Alborz highlands, Deraz-e-Now has an amazing view of Gorgan Bay and overlooks the cities and villages of Golestan and Mazandaran provinces. Deraz-e-Now has colorful wild and medicinal plants, dense and lush forests, waterfalls and springs.

These days, the heights of Golestan Province take on the color of autumn and show off with their eye-catching colors.

The two parts of Deraz-e-Now has 160 fixed families who use their summer environment for recreation only in spring and summer. 

In the village, houses have been built according to the climate of the region. Thatched houses with wooden and thatched walls and thatched roofs are for mountainous areas. The advantage of such buildings is that they maintain heat in winter and cool air flow in summer, and are resistant to earthquakes. 

The weather condition in Derz-e-Now is in stark contrast with that in big cities where people are grappling with severe air pollution. The most polluted city is the Iranian capital. Tehran on Tuesday registered red air quality alert and ranked as the world’s fourth most polluted city.
