Ghosts Lagoon

Ghost Lake
The Lake of Ghosts (Mamraz Lake) is a small lake situated in the richly-forested Iranian province of Mazandaran.

The lake is located 12 km from Nowshahr in Mazandaran province, which has a strange and scary name due to its distant past. The combination of dead trees in the middle of the lake and the fog that often surrounds the lake with the sound of wild animals in the area reminds you all of fantasy and horror movies, and these features make the name of lake “ghost lagoon”.

In Kish Island, near the Greek ship, there is a small and ruined castle that perhaps few people look at, because everyone is in a hurry to reach the Greek ship, one of the most famous sights of Kish. The castle is known as the “Jenny Castle” among the locals, and if you want to visit the castle at night, no one will help you, because the locals believe that the Jennies live in this castle.

In the hours when the sun moves away from the island and darkness reigns, this castle becomes a horrible environment. The sounds of the blue well near the castle and the wind have added to the horror of the environment.

We go to Kerman province and travel to Sirjan city to a mysterious garden where there is no greenery. At first glance, this garden may seem interesting and amazing, but walking through the dry trees, the fruits of which are made of stone, will create fear in your heart. This Stony Garden is called “Darvish Khan Garden” and its builder is a farmer named “Darvish Khan Esfandiarpour” who lost his natural state about 40 years ago after the drying of his farm and as a sign of protest, he planted his trees , which had already dried up, elsewhere, and hung the stones he had collected from the surrounding mountains as fruit from his trees.

Darwish Khan did not suffice the stone, and for a while he hung the heads of the sheep that had been torn by the wolf on the trees, which with the protests of the people, he stopped doing this.

The car’s exhaust pipes, worn-out gears, punctured tires, oil peat, tin cans, broken mirrors, cooler floats, broken hookah straws and many other wastes also appeared on these trees.
