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. Its mountainous regions have rare species of wild flora. These are effective in preserving soil texture and forming underground water. Haftad Qoleh which stretches from a north to south direction has seventy peaks.

The Chekab Valley lies between the Bazard and Haftad Qoleh Mountains. The Sibak Valley is between Haftad Qoleh and Bar Aftab Aqai Mountains. The Chekab Valley is a wild life habitat.
