Chabahar has a warm climate. Even in winter, it is possible to cultivate a variety of agricultural products.
Qasr-e Qand was famously known as Gandavag in the past. It was renamed over time to Ganj Avar. During the Portuguese invasion, sugar cane cultivation came to light. Since sugarcane is the primary ingredient in sugar production, the Ganj Avar name was replaced with Qasr-e Qand.
Qasr-e Qand is one of the oldest cities in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan. The area was highly susceptible to farming because of its location along the Kajo Kayaker River plus the existence of several water-filled aqueducts and suitable soil.
In terms of trade and commerce, major products such as sugar cane, red sugar, and leather were exported to major centers at the time such as Babylonia and Mesopotamia.
Lake Hamoon is the third largest lake in Iran after the Caspian Sea and Lake Urmia. The lake is made up of three small lakes witch at times connect through an abundance of water and form Hamoon Lake.
