Travellers looking for this port of entry on the map will find it between 29.475756 (latitude) and 60.90033 (longitude). It lies on a point of elevation about 4564 ft above sea level, with a long runway measuring up to 13,993 ft. This allows large planes to land in the area.
Travellers landing on Zahedan will find that it houses various educational institutions such as the Islamic Azad University and the University of Sistan and Baluchestan. Religious Sunni schools are also located in the city and within the suburbs. The place is very active with the townspeople converging on the popular areas in the city, especially in the marketplace where there are small- to medium-sized enterprises.
