Vurf Chaal ritual, in Iran’s Mazandaran

The people of Ab Ask Village on the outskirts of the city of Amol, northern Iran, have an ancient tradition named Vurf Chaal. As per the tradition, they separate pieces of snow in the "Ask Vash" area and carry them about a kilometer and dump them in a pit which is nearly 10 meters deep, thus filling the pit.

The people of Ab Ask believe that the water of the pit can be used by those who pass by and animals in the hot season.
