Chenaran County is another beautiful place near Gorine that is worth visiting for sure.

Constructing the new city of Chenaran dates back to 1330s, when the sugar factory of Chenaran was established and the city formed around this building. Before that time the city was called Radkan that was a village in Tus city in the past and it is a part of Chenaran city at present. It includes two counties and five rural districts now. This region was related to Mashhad city before the establishment, therefore, it can be said that its history is linked to the history of Mashhad and Tus.
Chenaran County has an amazing waterfall called Akhlamad in a beautiful village with the same name. Akhlamad is a thousand-year-old village located in northeastern Iran, close to Mashhad, in Chenaran County. This summer country has become a popular tourist attraction thanks to its outstanding valleys, roaring rivers, fruit gardens and high waterfalls sitting on the foothills of Binalud mountain ranges. Geological surveys maintain that the Ammonite Fossils found in this place date back to the Jurassic era, 56 million years ago. Historically speaking, this charming region, walled by white limestone, sheltered the people during the Arab conquest of this region.
The snow covered high peaks of Binalud Mountain have been home to several waterfalls. The most scenic waterfall of the village is 40 meters high. One kilometer away from this waterfall, stands another 23 meters high waterfall while two other waterfalls stand above it. In winters, the frozen waterfalls provide a breathtaking scenery of an exciting site suitable for ice climbing.
Rivers and springs surrounded by opulent gardens also attract the crowd to this area. The high-rising rocky cliffs in this region, with the height of 200 to 300 m, are an equally appealing option.
