Iran’s Beauties in Photos: Bahmanshir River

E-mail Print PDF

After reaching the city of Khorramshar, Karun River is divided into two estuaries: one pouring into Arvand and then the Persian Gulf and the other one pouring into Bahmanshir.

in local language meaning river), Bahmanshir has a 900-metre length connecting Karun to the Persian Gulf.

The two sides of Bahmanshir River are covered with green plants which are known for their fruitful palm trees.

Over the past years, due to the unscientific construction of dams as well as drought and traditional agriculture, the river has faced a lot of problems, losing most of its water.

Without the Bahmanshir, the waters of the Karun — like those of the Tigris and the Euphrates – would largely flow into the vast marshlands of southern Mesopotamia that included the entire southern half of the Khuzestan as well – leaving no navigable course to exist.
