How can you get there?
We recommend you take proper flights from Tehran to get there as it takes more than 12 hours by car and the roads are not good enough.
The South Khorasan is another cheap province in Iran so you do not worry to spend money there.
What to wear?
The weather in South Khorasan is usually warm and windy so we do not suggest you visit there in spring or summer.
