The villages are located 30 kilometres (19 mi) northwest of Astara, on the road to Ardabil.[1]

Winters are cold and snowy; summers are cool.


Heyran is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Iran, due to the beautiful and accessible scenery.[2]

Because of its desirable microclimate at summertime, many villas have been built in the neighborhood. The main road is crowded on the weekends.

The Heyran Gondola lift is above the villages, at a higher altitude in the Alborz.
