Haftad Qoleh Protected Area

Related to Arak city (located in Markazi province)
Expanding over 82.125 hectares, it is located in Arak and Mahalat. This region includes a complex of heights, hills and plains with steppe coverage.

Haftad Qoleh which stretches from a north to south direction has seventy peaks. This vicinity, due to special merits and abundance of a variety of wildlife has been considered as one of the oldest hunting regions of Iran which was favoured by monarchs specially kings of Qajar.
