Darasra forest is amongst Hyrcanian forests. The Hyrcanian forests on the southern shores of the Caspian Sea are world famous for their diversity of trees and their great antiquity.
The forests between the towns of Abbas Abad and Kelardasht are among the Hyrcanian forests that are especially known to nature lovers. The road from Abbas Abad to Kelardasht passes through this mountainous forest. The presence of very tall and beautiful trees is one of the characteristics of the forest in this area.
Darasra village is located in the heart of the forest between Abbas Abad and Kelardasht towns. A pristine dirt road starts from Darasra village and goes south in the heart of the forest. The existence of this wide and deserted old dirt road, which is now unused, has provided a good opportunity to walk or bike in the heart of the forest.
