Located in the province of Khorasan Razavi in northeastern Iran, Akhlamad Waterfall is a popular tourist site.

Akhlamad is a village in the province of Khorasan Razavi in northeastern of Iran. Akhlamad is known for its waterfalls which is a popular tourist excursion and also for its high walls which is one of the best climbing sites in Iran .

It is two kilometers from Akhlamad Village and 84 kilometers from Mashhad. The waterfall is approximately 40 meters tall and is situated at the bottom of a valley, surrounded by rocky cliffs measuring up to 300 meters at some points, HistoricalIran reported.

The mineral composition of the surrounding rocky terrain has caused the creation of a large circular pool at the base of the waterfall.
Fossils discovered in the mineral deposits date back to the Jurassic Period.

During the first few months of the year, as a result of heavy downpours in the area, Akhlamand Waterfall overflows with large volumes of water.

Some of the most frequently climbed rocky walls of this valley are known as the White Wall and Eagle.

Throughout the valley are a few seasonal waterfalls in addition to four permanent ones, the most notable among them being ...see more the Akhlamad Waterfall.

The surroundings have very clean and fresh air, and are known for the numerous apple and cherry trees.

During the cold winters, Akhlamad Waterfall offers a spectacular sight as it freezes completely.
There are many routes of sport climbing , trad climbing , aid climbing , bouldering and big walls (up to 250 m.). The routes' grade is different from 5.9 up to 5.13.
Hiking through the valley for seeing beautiful waterfalls is take about 2 hours.
Some waterfalls in winter are suitable for ice climbing (up to 40 m.).

Other than the magnificent natural view that it provides, the waterfall also produces a stiffer challenge to rock-climbing enthusiasts.

Due to its pleasant natural environment, many locals and tourists are attracted to the area’s beautiful setting.

However, unfortunately, the litter and environmental pollution in the vicinity of the Akhlamad Waterfall is worrisome.

In spite of a fee being charged to access the Akhlamad area (separately for both admission and parking), which is explained as partially going toward litter removal, the vast amount of garbage left by visitors seems to have gone unattended to.
