When talking about Iran's nuclear program, the word Natanz, which is a uranium enrichment plant, is often heard. About 30 kilometers away is this quiet town of the same name. Many tourists do not stop here, although there is an interesting tomb of Sheikh Abdolsamad surrounded by the old town.

Mountains around Natanz

If you come to Natanz from the north, from Kashan, you will enjoy the arid Karkas mountains for a long time. Here is the highest mountain of Karkas (3,895 m above sea level)

Desert and semi-desert

Virtually the entire interior of Iran is a desert and a semi-desert. The green oases of towns and villages are mostly just under the mountains at the source of such valuable water.
