The most sacred place of Zoroastrianism
Chak Chak, the most sacred place of the ancient religion Zoroastrianism, lies hidden in the mountains strongly reminiscent of the famous Jordanian desert Wadi Rum. For someone may be more interesting the ride through the desert rather than the very small temple hidden in a cave over a number of newly constructed buildings. However, the trip to Chak Chak is certainly worth it.
To the north of Yazd is several hundred kilometers of desert with virtually no inhabitants. From the arid plains rise relatively high interesting mountains.

Most of the surrounding mountains are mesas, reminiscent a little of desert Wadi Rum.
Road to Chak Chak
The easiest way to get to Chak Chak is within an organized trip from Yazd. Head out deeper into the desert after seeing Kharanaq. From Kharanaq it is only about 35 kilometers to Chak Chak.
Along the way you'll see only miniature oasis lying under several hundred meters high almost vertical walls. The village Hamaneh lies below the mountain, which has nearly three thousand meters above sea level.

Below Chak Chak
If you arrive by bus, the ascent of almost two hundred meters of altitude will await you. Shared taxi will save you nearly half of the ascent thanks to higher parking place.
At the sanctuary
The sanctuary itself is located in a small cave surrounded by greenery at the highest point of the strange, almost uninhabited town.
Interesting gilded doors lead to the shrine. Inside you will see the fires as the greatest symbol of Zoroastrianism.
