Iran-Hormozgan-Qeshm Island (chahkooh valley)___تنگه چاهکوه

دره يا تنگه چاه‌كوه، در بخش شهاب از توابع شهرستان قشم، دره‌اى به عمق 100 متر، نمايشي از فرسايش سنگ‌هاى رسوبى است. اين دره در 70 کيلومتري شهر قشم و در کنار روستاي چاهوي شرقي، در بخش غربي ساحل شمالي جزيره قشم قرار دارد و يکي از مهمترين جاذبه‌هاي گردشکري جزيره قشم است

اين دره شگفت انگيز، در دل يک کوه سنگي يکپارچه که به شکل ضربدر برش خورده قرار دارد. چاهکو در ابتدا عريض و با ديواره هاي بلند در برابر ديدگان مخاطب ظاهر مي شود، ولي بتدريج از عرض آن کاسته تا جايي که عبور از ميان آن دشوار مي شود اين درحالي است که ارتفاع ديواره ها همچنان زياد است و به همين دليل داخل دره نور کمي وجود دارد

Chahkooh Canyon is located at a 15km distance of Tabl village in South-East of Eastern Chahoo village. In the site, there are two canyons plumbed on each other vertically. It is a narrow canyon with vertical rims and wonderful formations, which seems to be representing a creative artist’s demonstration. In some cases, the width of these rims reaches even to 1 m. This canyon which has been created in a layer of sand and due to the existence of marl layers, silt and lime and their dissolving erosion in holes, several beautiful ruts have been created. Since the floor of the canyon is the place on which water flows after each time raining, the locals have graved well (Chah in Persian) on it to make use of water, so the name “Chahkooh’ which means “Mount Well” has accordingly been chosen for it.
