Qasemabad, a Gilani lodge

Beset by mountains and woods, Qasemabad is a narrow expanse of dazzling beauty. In old times, it provided a strategic position where locals could make forays against invaders.

People of the region are reputed for their hard and unyielding disposition against oppression and tyranny, a temperament that has been undoubtedly instrumental in preserving their custom in their pristine form.  But do not be alarmed; locals are sociable and hospitable like the rest of their fellow citizens, resenting any sort of prejudice against guests and foreigners.
