In the Talesh mountains, the snow is so deep for the villagers that most of them leave their wooden cottages in the winter due to the heavy snowfall and return home in late spring.
Talesh is located on the southwestern coast of the Caspian Sea. The county, covering an area of nearly 2,500 square kilometres, accounts for one-fourth of surface area of Gilan Province in northern Iran. Talesh has inland scenic areas in the Alborz mountain range, with intact natural habitats that are places for appreciating nature.
