Golestan National Park is the first to be allocated as a national reserve in Iran, and is roughly 93,000 hectares situated about mid-way between Bojnourd and Gonbad-e-Kavus in Golestan Province in northeast Iran. The mountains in the western part of the park are covered with a climax forest of Tertiary origin to which the Caspian climate, still prevailing here, has imparted a special luxuriance.
As one moves east, the forest gives way to scrub and then to lush steppe vegetation with attractive stands of juniper and scrub maple. The abundance and diversity of wildlife, in both the forested area and the montane steppe, is quite remarkable and includes the red deer (Maral), roe deer (Suka), and wild boar (Goraz) in the former, and large herds of the urial sheep (Gooch) and ibex (Pazhan) in the latter, while among the larger predators, leopard (Palang) and brown bear (Khers), can be observed in both. The birdlife too is astonishingly rich; some 160 species have been recorded in the late 1970s.
