Hashilan Wetland is about 30 km northwest of Kermanshah. The Kermanshah Environmental Protection Agency has banned hunting and shooting in this area. In this wetland, there are about 110 small and large islands with an area of approximately 100 square meters to about one hectare, some of which are hidden under water during the winter and in rainy days due to an increase in the water level. The name of this place is based on the Kurdish dialect, consisting of two parts, Hashi meaning snake and Lan meaning home.
