Mineral Springs in Iran

1-620x400What could be more relaxing than sinking into a nice bubbling hot spring at the end of a long hard day? It could be after a difficult day at work, or it could be after a wonderful yet exhausting day of travel, if you’ve decided to travel to Iran. Mineral or hot springs are naturally occurring springs that contain fresh water but have a large amount of minerals. Often, they will smell of sulfur and are heated by the earth’s core. Many times, they may be found near a dormant volcano.

For centuries, drinking mineral water and bathing in mineral springs has been thought to have positive medical effects. It is especially meant to be beneficial for those suffering from joint and muscle pain as well as poor circulation. In badab-e-surt-12the past, westerners would travel to these types of locations in order to “take the waters” and to ease whatever suffering they thought could be alleviated by it.

Not only are mineral springs soothing to those aches and pains, but they are also a lot of fun and usually situated in beautiful location. They are the perfect holiday spot for those tourists looking to do a bit of spa-type of relaxation. Iran is a great choice for the mineral springs/mineral springs resort seekers. In Iran, there are two locations which are great for dipping into those hot mineral springs. One is called Tap Tapan Springs in Azar Shahr, Iran. Not only are there hot springs, but there is also a semnanhistorical city nearby that tourists could check out on their way!

Another spot to “take the waters” is located in Sareyn, or Sarein. This is in the northwestern part of Iran, and is well known for its many mineral springs. The population there is about 8000 generally, but it increases by more than twice during tourist season, when everyone wants to go and take part in the beautiful hot springs. This hot spring is heated by Mount Sabalan, which is an inactive volcano. It also is close to an interesting and tourism-friendly city. So, you can get more than you bargained for when heading to Sarein: a bit of tourism, history, good traditional food, terraced-hot-springs-in-iran-3and a soothing mineral spring. Now, what can beat that?

The power of mineral water and mineral springs has been known and made use of for centuries. In the past, people would use the strength of this water to heal those with various ailments or to at least ease their suffering. It is still so today. Even though we have more advanced scientific and medical capabilities, many still turn to water, in its purest form, to help guide them towards health or just to simply relax and have a great time. And, Iran is a wonderful place to do just that. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the mineral hot springs and the beauty of this desert country.
