Its attractions mainly consist of its natural beauty including Alamkooh Mountain (the second tallest peak in Iran (4850 m)), Abbasabad Road, Valasht lake and cooler climate. But picnicking and mountain climbing in the area surrounding Rud Barak are also popular, as well as in the lush Abbasabad Forest nearby.
