This wetland is situated in the dense forest ‘Feyeen’ of Chaloos. The same prolongs over an area of 1 hectare and is about 5 m. deep. This sweetwater wetland is surrounded by trees, besides the rush-brakes within the water itself and other fauna. This area is a habitat for birds and wildlife that make use of the water here. The area provides space for camping purposes and sightseeing.
This river takes its source in the Kandovan Mountains which is a part of the Alborz Mountain Range and flows into the Caspian Sea. The Kandovan peak, Alam Kooh Summit, Hezar Cham Valley and springs, forests and lush green rice fields all create a glorious painting of nature in this region.

The palace maintains a sloped roof and served as a temporary place of residence for figures, who visited this region.

Namak abrood has an aerial tramway which starts at the sea level near the shores of the Caspian Sea and ends on the top of the Alborz heights crossing dense forest area of northern Iran. Namak Abrood is a resort town that sits at the base of a mountain with the same name. Among the many attractions of this town, is a 2050 m long gondola line that goes from sea level to near the summit of the mountain clearing a path through the forest (a second line has also become operational since I visited the area is 2005). A trail that makes a seemingly endless number of switchbacks goes up the path under the lift through a dense growth of ferns and other bushes. From the top of the gondola, you will have a superb view of the Caspian Sea and the narrow strip of land between the sea and the mountain.
