Andej

Canyon in Mo'allem Kalayeh

The 8km road spur to Andej (elevation 1587m) passes alongside three truly awesome red-rock side canyons, where you can cross the river on a rickety bridge and explore. The turnoff is just northwest of Shahrak, which has a prominent (but not assassin-related) castle ruin. After the canyons, fork left up the hill in Andej village and double back around towards Mo'allem for a magnificent perspective from above.
