Why is it called Filband?

But since there were no elephants in Iran, it was not credited. In another narrative, it is also stated that the word Fel in the linguistic dialect of locals means ‘fatigue’, and the word Band has the meaning of ‘overwhelming’.
Since the route to the village is very hard to walk, due to its high altitude and steep hills, it is known for this particular name. Some people still call the village by the name of Feb and or (elephant Stopper).
