Semirom is a County in the south of Isfahan province; with an altitude of more than 2500 meters above the sea level, it is considered as one of Iran's highest cities.

Iran (IMNA) - Having highland climate and rises and falls, this mountainous county dates back to 700 BC.

Semirom is home to ancient monuments, including cuneiform scripts and cylindrical stones that are known as Mill; Deceased scholar, Ernst Herzfeld, has recognized them as works of the Sassanid era.

Semirom; Iran's roof

This tall waterfall, sited at the end of a defile, used to be 70 meters high, however, today it has reached 35 meters due to water erosion over time.

Descending over rocks, the fresh water of the waterfall originates from upstream springs such as Aziz Khan.

If you want to see the impressive Semirom waterfall, be sure to visit the nearby "Ashkaftarz" cave, where water falls from its walls. This cave is about 2 km away from the entrance of the waterfall.
