During the two weeks we made a trip through the whole Iran. We made over 3000 km with route looks like a loop – from Tehran, to Isfahan, then to Shiraz, Bandar Abbas, islands – Qeshm and Hormuz, Yazd and finally again to Teheran. We travel in group – only 3 girls – but on the road we meet so many cheerful people, and for some parts of our journey they join to us. For example one German guy which cycled from Germany to Iran and wanted to catch a ferry from Bandar Abbas to Dubai and take a flight to South-East Asia.
At first I didn’t expect nothing special about Iran. But with the time spending in this country I feel so amazed by its undiscovered beauty! With beautiful architecture and such a raw but amazing landscapes.
For me the highlight of the trip was Qeshm island. Totally unknown! I barely find some info about it before our travel. The landscapes there was so unique – those shapes! – that I definitely want to go back there

The name of this place is because locals belive that if stars fallen and hit in the ground – the ground will rise up and with frozen movement it will be looks like this – like Stars Valley.
