Pass through the windy forest until you get to Abbas Abad road and then continue to the exit, from there on the road itself will take you to the paradise you seek. A countryside on top of a mountain surrounded by clouds.


The theory on how Mazichal got its name is due to the large number of chestnuts trees in this area. In local dialect, mazi means chestnuts and chal means valley. Thus, the name Mazichal refers to the nature of the area, a valley peppered with chestnuts trees. Beautiful, isn’t it? The presence of dense forests and lovely white clouds that constantly change shape has made this village a special and unique travel destination. You may have heard the word “Cloud Ocean”.
