Photo Series: Autumn in Iran – Along the Zayanderud, Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari

Zayanderud (literally ‘river that gives life’) is the largest river in the central plateau of Iran. It starts in the Zagros mountain range in western Iran and runs 400km to the east before ending in the Gavkhouni Swamp, a seasonal salt lake, southeast of Isfahan city, in the central part of the country.

The Zayanderud Dam had its floodgates opened on Friday to supply the water required for farmers’ autumnal crop growing. The increase in discharge of the Zayanderud is making the landscape along the river even more enjoyable (see photos below).
