Chabahar Martian Mountains - Sistan Balouchestan Province
The Miniature, or Martian Mountains, also known as Kalaani among the locals, are a mountain range stretching from Kachu to Gwadar Bay alongside the sea.


The pristine Martian Mountains of Chabahar, also known as Miniature Mountains, are located between the Beris Strait and Gwadar Bay. Because of their particular sedimentation and erosion, these mountains have forms similar to the rugged surface of Mars. Calcareous sediments of the remains of marine organisms (crustaceans and fish), along with sand and clay, are the main constituents of these mountains.

The color, appearance, shape, and material of the mountains are very strange. The geometric patterns of the mountains have been created by rapid soil erosion caused by heavy rain and wind. The mountains are made of sedimentary rocks with a grayish white color.
