A Qanat is an ancient water system that brings underground water to the surface. Qantas consist of several parts such as mother well, access shaft, channels, outlet, etc.The native engineering methods and special architecture of Qanats over the centuries have surprised recent archeology researchers. Most Persian Qanats are found in desert areas. Although some of them have dried up due to decline in groundwater levels, many of them are still active. The living Qanats are those constructed in ancient times but still work well.
On this unique experience we go to one of the most beautiful desert cities in Iran, Ardakan, trek the routes of old Qanats and learn about their architecture & engineering. An experienced Qanat guide who has been mainly a Qanat digger accompanies us so you hear real Qanat stories while trekking in a safe and secure path. Moreover, you will have the chance to stay in a lovely historic guesthouse, try local foods,taste Ardakani pastries and enjoy a night excursion around the old Ardakan neighborhoods.
