Overview

Khuzestan, a geographic region in southwestern Iran, lying at the head of the Persian Gulf and bordering Iraq on the west. It is notable for its oil resources. The area that is now Khuzestan was settled about 6000 BC by a people with affinities to the Sumerians, who came from the Zagros Mountains region.

Visit the Seven Hills Museum & ChoghaZanbil Ziggurat, which is home to one of the world's oldest temples. Walk through the Heaven of Gardens, which are full of bergamot, fine pomegranate, grapes, and delicious pears and dates. Souvenirs of traditional handicrafts may be purchased, and delicious and diverse Persian food can be sampled.

Besides all the historical and natural wonders, Khuzestan is also a region with a strong Arab culture as well as the winter residence of the Bakhtiari nomads.

Khuzestan (Ahvaz) tour

Highly recommend to do not miss Khuzestan on your Iran trip. Mostly skip visiting Khuzestan as it is off the beaten path, but as the origin of Persia civilization there are lots of things to explore and wonders there. As Dutch couple quite happy to added Khuzestan in our bucket list before we regret haha
