Garmasar: Salt caves and green ponds

The salt mines of the central Iranian city of Garmsar are among the tourist attractions of Semnan Province and attract numerous visitors to the area every year.

The mines boast interlinked shafts and halls, which are partitioned by salt pillars, creating magnificent and wonderful views. The area outside the mines also boasts numerous colorful, one-of-a-kind salt domes. 

But that’s not all. White salt pillars and the mines are also bordered by small green ponds, which create a wonderful scene.  

Garmsar is also home to a gorge called Zolomat – darkness in Persian – due to its high walls and deep passageway where little sunlight gets in, even during the day.
