Located in southwestern Iran, Yasuj is the capital of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, a city in the Zagros Mountain and at the foothills of the Dena Mountain range with archaeological findings dating back to the Achaemenid period. Quite outstanding among the Iranian cities and towns, Yasuj is shrouded by a vast oak forest, which both enhances its beauty and gives a temperate climate for its residents.
