139 km north of Shiraz, behind the incredible mountains of "Setakhteh Gozin" on top of Dashtak Mountain is the marvelous village of Dashtak. The abundance of water in the form of springs and rivers makes this cool-temperate village generous to walnut trees. Other than the eco-attractions, this village is also historical. An ancient stairway, currently useless, used to be the only connection between the two villages of Dashtak and Hesar. Although it is amazing in summer and spring, we suggest this tour to be operated in autumn when the trees are painted with colorful leaves.
