PHOTOS: Khazineh Canyon, A Tourist Hub In Western Iran

Darreh Khazineh is a steep canyon located in western Iranian province of Lorestan. Some refer to this natural wonder as Iran's Grand Canyon. People use an elevated suspension bridge that spans Darreh Khazineh over Seymareh River to cross the canyon. The 112-meter-long bridge, with an altitude of more than 85 meters, is said to be the highest in the Middle East.

The bridge is named after Khazineh village, itself a tourist hub, located somewhere in the middle of a road that connects Andimeshk to Pol-e Dokhtar.
