Masuleh Village, Fooman - This village is situated in the south west of Fooman, 63 km. from Rasht. It enjoys a moderate climate. Local architecture, springs, waterfalls, the 'Rood Khan' River and dense forests all make it an attractive tourism spot. Masuleh's integrated architecture and its houses are of two storeys. These comprise of an entrance corridor, cellers and other unique architectural features, and are linked to each other by a staircase. Such that the terrace of each house is the court-yard of the house above. The presence of the ancient Own Ebne Ali and Own Ebne Mohammad in Masuleh are pilgrimage sites and hold cultural importance.

Alburz or Elburz, is a mountain range in northern Iran stretching from the borders of Armenia in the northwest to the southern end of the Caspian (Mazandaran) Sea, and ending in the east at the borders of Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. The largest mountain in the Middle East, Mount Damavand, is located in the range.

The Alborz mountain range forms a barrier between the south Caspian and the Qazvin-Tehran plateau. It is only 60-130 km wide and consists of sedimentary series dating from Upper Devonian to Oligocene, prevalently Jurassic limestone over a granite core. Its higher elevations, in the Elburz Range forest steppe ecoregion, are arid with few trees, but its northern slopes, in the Caspian Hyrcanian mixed forests ecoregion, are lush and forested.

Kouhrang is among the most beautiful towns of Chaharmahal-Bakhtiyari province. It hosts various springs such as Deimeh, Parak (some 75 km from the provincial capital Shahr-e Kord), Sardab, Morvarid and Kouhrang mineral water (Chelgard), as well as natural attractions such as Choma Cave and Inverted Tulips Plain, Mehr News Agency reported.
The town’s verdant landscape and natural attractions appeals to most urban tourists.
Kouhrang Waterfall
The waterfall has been created from the water released by Kouhrang’s first tunnel. The tunnel was built in 1954 to transfer the water of Kouhrang Spring and other adjacent springs to Zayanderoud River.
Efforts to transfer water from this region date back to a long time ago. During the reign of the Safavid Dynasty, efforts for creating a fissure in the mountain and transferring water failed.
