Iran plans to create its first space theme park in the southern Qeshm Island in the Persian Gulf. In this regard, the Iranian Space Agency and the Qeshm Free Zone Organization have recently inked a memorandum of understanding in order to design and develop the theme park.

Based on the agreement, new destinations will be defined, located and planned for both domestic and foreign travelers. The scheme is intended to take advantage of tourism potentials of the region, such as the natural capacities of Darre-ye Setaregan (“The Valley of Stars”) and its clear night sky.

Experts say that the vast island has great potentials for becoming a hub for astronomers in the region.

Qeshm Island embraces a wide range of ecotourism attractions such as the Hara marine forests and about 60 villages dotted mostly across its rocky coastlines. The island has an abundance of wildlife, including birds, reptiles, dolphins and turtles as well.

One of the most spectacular natural sites on Qeshm Island, features a series of majestic gorges and canyons that were formed over centuries by erosion. Wandering amid the valley is a magical experience – it's like stepping into a Salvador Dalí painting.

Chahkuh gorge is on the north-western part of the island not far from Table Village. This Geosite is an exceptional example of erosion through rainstorm water. Heavy rainstorms (that are also rare) quickly flush water through geological structures. Erosion however has been a secondary factor in forming this beautiful valley In fact, it has primarily been affected by the Salt Dome and related anticline.
