Channelling Turkey's Cappadocia and looking like the cover of a fantasy novel, Kandovan's curious troglodyte cliff dwellings have been carved into eroded volcanic lahar pillars. These cones sit above a newer, lower village, which has spread extensively around their base. Beat the incessant crowds by coming late in the day, when the light is soft and the rocks have a warm glow. The village has an admission fee of IR30,000. The area also has interesting hiking possibilities.
