    I asked at reception desk of Iran hotel in Ahvaz how much would cost taxi to Choqa Zanbil. It ended that one of hotel employees took me there and back by his own car for 220 000 rials.

    Haft Tappeh Favorites

    We can go up the mounds if we want. No entrance fees whatsoever.Just be careful as there are holes here & there.Also, there would be some workers doing some works there & they might not like you climbing up the mounds as it would probably interupting their work.Better ask permission first.
