The 16,000-hectare Parvand no-hunting area is located in the large part of Roudab, 75 km from Sabzevar city. The maximum altitude of the region is 1455 meters above sea level in Parvand mountains and the minimum is 960 meters on the edge of Zarghani plain. The average annual temperature is 16 degrees Celsius and annual evapotranspiration is 2200 mm.
Climax species of the region are some wild pistachio and almond trees and a 400-year-old juniper tree, which grows in the neck of a boulder on the western slopes and rocks of Parvand Mountain near Parvand limestone cave and adds to the unique natural capabilities of this region.

There are 5 reservoirs in the region called Dahaneh-Berenji, Chah-e-Barzan, Sang-e-Ab-Gorgi, Borjak and Dardasht, which are dewatered in winter and used by the livestock of the region.
In 2003, an earthen dam was constructed by the Khorasan Department of Environmental Protection, 5 km away from Sabri village, in order to provide drinking water for the region’s wildlife, which has attracted the attention of migratory ducks and caused their temporary residence in the region. The villages around the region are: Parvand at a distance of 4 km, Grub on the southern border and Sebri village which is located 5 km southwest of the region. The watchtower and environmental checkpoint are located in the northeast of the region.

In addition, there are heights such as Chah Ghand Mountain, Qurtakeh Mountain, Qole-Takan , as well as Dochahi passes and Yousef Valley and Chah Taghar fractures in this area.

The main sources of manual water supply for wildlife that are transferred to drinking fountains include a deep Zarqani well in the west and a wind well in the south. At the same time, the naturally formed limestone aquifers in Parvand Mountain are used as drinking fountains by the animals of the region.

Desert tourism is an exciting pastime with experiences that you will not get anywhere.

Watching the beautiful night sky with a deep silence makes you think, a silence and peace that you may never have in life except in the desert.

Desert entertainment

Among the attractive pastimes of the desert, we can mention camel riding, four-wheeled motorcycle, off-road, sky observation, hiking, sand riding, paragliding and buggy riding, which you will need 4 to 24 hours to experience all of them. Also, if you want to spend the night in the desert, you can use local houses or eco-lodges for accommodation.

Ordinary people usually choose to travel to the north of the country or one of its scenic cities when they plan to travel. But adventurous and heartfelt people, for travel and real excitement, usually choose unreasonable places to travel. Many of us may have climbed a mountain for once, or walked in a forest, etc., each with its own excitement. But one of the strangest excursions is desert touring.

Perhaps the most beautiful part of desert wandering is the part where when you get to a village or hamlet and talk to the people there, it is very exciting to hear the horror stories and fairy tales that the ghosts and fairies tell you.
