Govatr Harra Forest

Mangrove Forest Govatr, Sistan Balochestan

Iran, with several provinces adjacent to the Persian Gulf and the Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčOman with a long sea border and beautiful and pristine beaches, has a high potential to attract tourists. Unlike the north coast, which is mostly occupied by people, the south of Iran is still unchanged and free for public use, and this is an important feature to attract domestic and foreign tourists to these areas.

Sistan and Baluchestan province is one of the provinces that has very scenic beaches due to its long border with the Oman Sea and the Indian Ocean. Most of these beaches without vegetation are significant, but in the southeastern corner of Iran in the last port of Iran, there are beautiful mangrove forests that have become one of the tourist destinations in Iran.

The port of Govatr is near the borders of Pakistan and its inhabitants are fishermen. But in addition to fishing, due to the boom in tourism, they are also moving travelers through the Hara (mangrove) forests.

Mangroves are a species of tree that over the years, with amazing evolution, have been able to grow by the sea and salt water. In this way, by creating large forests in the coastal strip, they have created large habitats for other animals and birds. Each time the tide turns, a significant portion of these trees are submerged in water, and the trees and their roots are exposed to the air again at high tide. In this way, different views of these beautiful forests can be seen at any time of the day or night. In the south of Iran, there are many such forests, the largest of which is the Qeshm mangrove forest

It is about 100 km from Chabahar to Goater wharf, which can be crossed by all types of vehicles.
