Stars Valley is one of the Most Breathtaking Landscapes and a beautiful ancient geo-site in Iran, situated in the only geo-park of the Middle East, 5km away from the southern edge of Qeshm Island in the Persian Gulf.
This amazing natural phenomenon made by layers of rocks and is there thanks to soil erosion triggered by surface water, torrential rain and high gusts in the area.
The Stars Valley is a rare geological phenomenon and is almost 2 million years old. It is composed of marl and sandstone, and the rock formations vary from tall pillars, creating canyon-like paths, to hollowed-out spaces and smooth, round stones. With a little imagination, the eye can make out the shapes of faces, hands, animals, and even the map of Ira!
This magic place is known for this silence and is imbued with legends and folklore. The natives believe that a star had fallen from the sky and created strange shapes from soil, stone, and sand. They also believe that the sounds, caused by wind, are chatters of ghosts and elves living in the valley. This reason is enough to keep them away from the Star Valley at nights or frighten those staying in the valley.
