Due to the geographical location, the climate of Masouleh village is different from most of the residential areas in Iran. The warm, humid air from the Caspian that blew back was blocked by the Alborz Mountains, creating heavy rain and mist. Fog is also considered one of the "specialties" of the village. The other side of the Alborz mountain receives little rainfall, arid land, and harsh climate. Photo: WordPress.
