The valley is a rare natural masterpiece on the beautiful island of Qeshm. The northern side of Qeshm Island is close to Berke-ye Khalaf Village have shown its strange geological feature.

Zein-o-Din Caravanserai is the only circled caravansary in Iran. From outside, you are only able to see a rounded shape, but from the inside, it is actually a dodecagon. To renovate this valuable monument, they used natural materials from the surrounding area to preserve its authenticity. Apart from riding camels and watching the sky night, the caravanserai itself is an attraction. Also, Jameh Mosque of Mehr Padin and the ancient cedar tree of Mehriz are other attractions nearby.
