On the southern heights of the Zagros Mountains, there is an impressive plain called Dasht-e Arzhan, located between Shiraz and Kazerun. Many Shirazi and Kazeruni families take a trip to this plain on holidays. Dasht Arzhan is one of the top five beautiful plains in Iran.

You can bring your lunch with you for a picnic. If not, there are several restaurants nearby. Besides, vendors on roadside sell grilled chicken and meat.

Arzhan Lake is located in Dasht-e Arzhan. In the past, the area around the lake was covered with reeds and considered a home for the Persian lion and deer. But now, with the destruction of these reeds and their conversion into agricultural lands, this area is no longer a habitat for these animals.

Arzhan village is located north of this lake, and its local market is among the tourist attractions of the region. Arzhan waterfall is another feature that draws travelers to the area. This waterfall freezes in winter, making a stunning view.

The famous antiquities and inscriptions of "Tang Shapur" are located northwest of this area.

Vegetation and trees in Dasht Arzhan include oak, hawthorn, and almond trees. In the cold seasons of the year, the region will be covered with daffodil flowers.

To reach this plain, you have to exit the city from the east side and drive westward. After a 50 kilometer drive on the Kazerun-Bushehr highway, we reach Dasht Arzhan. Arzhan is a plain, but you can take a walk to the surrounding mountains and enjoy the natural scenery.
