Stars Valley Geosite, Qeshm
Located near Berkeh Khalaf Village, not far from the Town of Qeshm, the Star Valley is at present the most visited among all Geosites. The Star Valley is a unique example among all Geosites to study erosion. People of the "Stars Valley" believe that once a huge star fell on their village (in the corner of Qeshm island, located in south of Iran) and made strange design of soil and stone and a shape there remained forever. The Stars Valley is known as one of the most beautiful geological manifestations in Qeshm Island. It has been created in Berkeh Khalaf Village gradually and through erosion.
