Stars Valley is a natural consequence of wind erosion and rainstorm washing out from Cenozoic period (2 million years ago) up to now. The valley locates in Qeshm Island, Persian Gulf, Iran. It is a magnificent gallery of natural features, in depth of 7 to 15 meters below original plateau, including columns, sharp cones, arches and edges all made from sand and natural cement. Based on locals' believes, the valley is formed after falling a star, many centuries ago; the name of valley is after that incident. Due to specific shape and arrangement of columns, wind made noise is audible through the valley, inducing a mysterious mood. The latter makes locals to believe in ghost traffic through the valley; they avoid entering to the valley during evening and night...
