Piran Waterfall

Piran Waterfall, Sarpol-e Zahab, Kermanshah, Iran

Waterfalls are among the most important sights in the field of nature tourism and attract many enthusiasts. Meanwhile, waterfalls that have higher heights are more importance and are a priority for tourists.

There are many large and small waterfalls in Iran, especially in the northern and western provinces of Iran. Gilan, Mazandaran, Lorestan and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari provinces are in the top ranks in terms of number and quality of waterfalls.

But one of the tallest and most important waterfalls in Iran is located in Kermanshah province and in the city of Sarpol-e Zahab. This waterfall, which is known as Piran waterfall or Rijab waterfall, flows on a high wall and shows a unique view.

Piran waterfall had three separate floors before the devastating earthquake in 2017, but as a result of this earthquake, its third waterfall was destroyed due to the collapse of the upstream walls, and now it has only two floors of the waterfall. Yet its beauty and grandeur are still exemplary.

The height of this waterfall is about 150 meters, which with this number can be considered one of the tallest waterfalls in Iran.

It is possible to visit Piran waterfall from two different directions. Through Rijab village, you can reach the top of the waterfall and see this waterfall from above. This route is easy and does not require walking.

Through the city of Sarpol-e Zahab and the village of Piran, you can reach the bottom of the waterfall and see this waterfall from the bottom view. This route necessarily requires a walk of about half an hour. Both routes have their charms and for those who are interested in this waterfall, visiting both routes is recommended.
