In addition to its beautiful nature, Tangeh Vashi enjoys numerous historical works as well. One of the three famous inscriptions from the Qajar era is in this gorge. The inscription located at Tangeh Savashi is 6x7 meters around which the accidents of the Fath Ali Shah era are carved and narrated. The largest relief of these inscriptions is the figure of a hunting ground with the picture of a horse, a spear, and the hunts around which we can see Abbas Mirza, Aliqoli Mirza and Alinaqi Mirza, sons of Fath Ali Shah, as well as his descendants hunting. This inscription, which is almost 185 years old, is carved at the heart of the mountain in a way that it has been immune from rain and sunshine.

  • Background information

    Slightly lower, in a hilly area, the stream provided a patch of lush grazing land within the mountains. Until the 20th century the area was a royal hunting reserve, populated by various wildlife. The Qajar Persia king Fath Ali Shah (1772 – 1834) maintained a hunting lodge there.To commemorate his hunts, Fath Ali Shah ordered the carving of a relief in the mid way point of the pass. There are ruins of a Qajar guard tower at the top of one of entrances to the gorge.
  • Specific information

    , it hosts a huge crowd of passengers and tourists. One of the most attractive parts of one’s trip to Tangeh Vashi is perhaps passing a river which is located in the middle of a stone valley. This place includes two gorges, the first of which is called “Vashi” and the second one “Sa”. At the end of the second gorge, there is a waterfall as high as 15 meters. The walking path starting from the first gorge includes three parts:
    1st part: from the first gorge to Savashi plain (almost 250 meters)
    2nd part: Savashi plain walk (almost 1700 meters)
    3rd part: from the second gorge to the waterfall (almost 800 meters)
  • Outlook

    The waterfall pours down a rock on which there is a depression that provides the possibility of going behind the waterfall and being surrounded by the waterfall and the rock.

  • Recommendation

    Today, the relief is a popular tourist attraction and the location is also highly popular among trekking and hiking fans.
    One of the souvenirs of Jalizjand village or Savashi is “Five-Herbs Doogh”. This local doogh contains the aromatic herbs of garden thyme, mint, thymus and two types of pennyroyal. Plum sauce and sour Lavashak are among other souvenirs of this region.
  • Must know

    The path to the first gorge includes a deep crack among tall mountains; rocks that in some cases are as high as 100 meters and even more and are the only path to the flat and level track between the two rocks. The height of surrounding rocks blocks the sunlight in most hours of the day and brings you a cool path. It would get even cooler when you have to pass most of the path through the water.
    After passing the 250-meter path in the first gorge, you reach a beautiful flat plain through which, after walking for almost 2000 meters in this gorgeous plain and along the river, you arrive in the second gorge. If you keep walking through the path of the second gorge, you would reach a not-so-high, but gorgeous waterfall at the end of the path. Due to being located at the heart of the mountain, the path of the second gorge includes small but beautiful waterfalls pouring down the mountain. The waterfall is 15 meters high under which there is a small pool. The second gorge is known as “Sa” gorge.
