The Badab Soort Natural Spring is located south of Sari and is considered one of the most incredible sights of its region. It is at a height of 1,841 meters above sea level and just west of the village or Orost. It is believed that the Spring was created during the Paleocene Era and at the same time as the latest folds in the Alborz mountain range (read more and see more photos on Historical Iranian sites and people).

Two years ago, Badab Soort was registered as the second natural site in Iran.  However, according to a recent report by ISNA, this magnificent site is suffering from neglect. This natural wonder is under threat due to mining too close to the spring, dumping of garbage into the water and other irresponsible acts.
