Gileboom Homestay and Tourist Attraction
Gileboom homestay has a view of the green foothills of Gishar-Kooh and the highest peak in Gilan, Somamous. Gileboom is located near the Caspian Sea (also called Khazar) and only 20 minutes away from the Hyrcanian Jungle. The Jungle is a habitat of many bird species just as the Caspian Sea is home to a diverse range of fish species.
Gileboom is 20 kilometers away from Ramsar and 50 kilometers away from Lahijan.
In autumn and winter, GileBoom garden is full of oranges. Other trees such as pear, white and dark fig bear fruits in early summer. The house’s porch is covered with mat and a seasonal stream passes through the yard. A green field located near Gileboom is a place for setting up ceremonies such as football, weddings and Gilak-style wrestling (known as Gile-Mardi wrestling).
Gileboom gives the local community an opportunity to showcase and sell their hand-made products and crafts. The food cooked in Gileboom is authentic Gilaki cuisine prepared by the local women, served in hand-made clay and china dishes and spread on a tablecloth along with traditional side-dishes and beverages.
Gileboom tours and programs are organized in cooperation with the local community with the aim of preserving the local art and culture and helping with sustainable development of the region. Orange-picking, cleaning the nature, visiting home-based felt making workshops, visiting tea factory, working at farm, pottery (known as sofalgari) and sculpture making, Chadorshab weaving, woodturning, fishing, hiking, educational tours and getting familiar with Ghasem-Abadi music and songs are some of the tours and programs conducted by Gileboom.
We hope to be able to take humble steps towards sustainable development of the region and exchanging national and international experiences with help from our dear guests.
