From a report from the Public Relations Department of Cultural Heritages, Handicrafts and Tourism Administration of South Khorasan, Mrs. Zahra Malakouti the Expert for the Administration of Recording Natural Heritages said: 'The Kal-e Jennie is located 27 Km Northwest of Tabas on the foot hills of the Shotori Mountains and down the Azmighan continual river where north of the river has a canal dividing the water to the villages.
This river passing through the edge of the beautiful village of Azmighan create particular climatic conditions where rice is planted with palm and citrus trees. This area in terms of geological and biological erosion phenomenan is very interesting and original. The name of Kal-e Jennie probably because of the fears of the sound which came from the blowing  wind into the holes and the shape of the holes and stones.The Kal-e Jennie path is 9 km. Severe erosion of the river bed reaches a depth of about 50 meters, have been causing ridges in the wall and in alluvial deposits even sediments deposited so that they are located below the unconformity are also exposed.
The particular importance is to protect and preserve this valuable and unique natural effect after its registration and comprehensive cooperation will require the relevant organizations and tourists'.
