Eskilim waterfall in Savadkooh is one of Mazandaran’s gorgeous tourist attractions which is in the middle of Lafoor Hirkani forests (caspian Hyrcanian mixed forests). Hirkani forests form a unique forested massif that stretches 850 km along the southern coast of the Caspian Sea. The history of these broad-leaved forests dates back to 40 million years, when they covered most of this Northern Temperate region. These ancient forest areas retreated during the Quaternary glaciations and then expanded again as the climate became milder.
After passing Firuzkuh and Pol Sefid, you will reach Shirgah region. Way to the jungle is through way to Alborz dam. From Alborz dam, you need 2 hours of walking. Best season for traveling is spring. You can also travel there in summer and autumn, but in winters because of cold weather, we do not suggest that.
