Hot springs can be seen in different parts of Iran, but perhaps in no part of Iran are there two springs with completely different temperatures next to each other. Springs that are located a few meters apart and have a temperature with significant differences. This extraordinary phenomenon is seen in the spring of Morteza Ali near Tabas.
Morteza Ali hot spring is one of the natural tourist attractions in the city of Tabas in South Khorasan province. This spring is located in the tourist route of Kharv village and at a distance of 27 km from Tabas city. But reaching this valuable spring is a bit difficult. It takes about 1 hour to walk on the riverbed, where water passes in many places. In fact, you have to jump into the water and walk for about an hour in this sand and water bed to finally be able to see this beautiful spring.
Morteza Ali spring is a collection of small springs that come out of the left wall of the mountain. The springs are not big enough to make you expect a pool. This water enters the cold water river, which has boiled just before other springs, and gradually mixes with this cold water. In a way that the heat of the water can be felt from a few hundred meters before Morteza Ali springs.
Morteza Ali hot spring is one of the natural areas with water with healing properties in terms of medical tourism. Domestic and foreign tourists welcome these areas, which also have beautiful nature. You will need at least 3 hours to visit these springs and you will need suitable shoes or sandals for walking on the riverbed. Shortly after Morteza Ali spring, you can see a large and majestic arch has been created in the riverbed, which is known as the Abbasi arch.
