The desert road there is absolutely stunning, rock mountains, lonely desert road, amazing experience. However Chak Chak itself is not as impressive, buildings in the cliff are relatively new, there was noise from construction work, the climb up is a bit tiring, while the cave itself was nothing special, old rock on one side, tiled floor, several religious attributes and...

Check the old location of the ancient Zoroastrian shrines. The building of the Temple. In ancient times to signal and find the path was used. Very beautiful place in the mountains with mountainous landscape and a certain lull the viewer seems to attract the best season is May to watch the beautiful mansion.

Perhaps the most stunning aspect of this Zoroastrian shrine is it's location. The desert and mountains around it appear both endless and lifeless, making this a truly special place to visit. Be sure to stop along the roads leading to Chak Chak. The village of Chak Chak is nothing special. All the buildings are modern and can be considered ugly.... More

The "town" is nothing special, not to say ugly. But the views from the place are amazing and the shrine itself is very nice and calm. You can clearly hear the drops of water the name of the place comes from. It is pleasantly cold after long, tiring climb. Admission is 50,000 rial.

During Yazd visit I had no plan to visit this place. My wife suggested this place to visit. I checked in google map and found 105 km far from Yazd downtown. Around 1:30 driving. I rejected to visit. My wife was sever to visit the place so I planned so. I could say it was the most intersting part of... More

If you are put of visiting Chak Chak due to Lonely Planet's description about a mean princess' cruelty then you would miss an important cultural site in a wonderful mountain setting. The mountain scenery on the way to this remote site is amazing. The barren and vast mountain scenery in Chak Chak is wonderful. The legend of the story of... More
