Tang-e Bostanak is a protected area, which is about 15,324 hectares. The height of this canyon is between 1700 to 2700 meters, resulting in a pleasant, cool climate during the hottest days of the year. The area is predominantly mountainous, covered with forests. It has dry summers and cold winters. The rocky bed of the valley has provided a suitable place for the growth of trees such as sycamore, walnut and other shade-loving plants. These plants make it difficult to find a trace of direct sunlight at the bottom of the valley. The natural low waterfalls enhance the beauty of this place. The Dorodzan Dam Lake is located near this canyon, which has created a significant natural habitat.

The fresh water of this lake makes it a good place for fishing. Bostanak itself has valuable wildlife that includes animals such as brown bears, hyenas, minks, Persian hedgehogs, long-tailed hamsters, rudders, wild cats, Persian squirrels, foxes, jackals, hogs, rabbits, birds of prey, wild pigeons, partridges, and other diverse animals. Its vegetation includes coriander, oak, hawthorn, juniper, almond, yarrow and thyme.
