Places to visit[edit]

Sandy hills and dunes adjacent to mountains form amazing landscapes. Among the unique natural attractions of the region, is a dune known as Cheetah's Tail (Persian: دم یوز‎, translit. Dom e Youz) because its shape is like a Cheetah's tail.[2] Also Ferdows Hole-in-the-Rock and Hole-in-the-Rock Cave are located near the Polond Desert.
