Abstract: 

The recognition of human bioclimatic comfort in geographical area is an important factor for planning of ecotourism. Climate is a very important component to identify natural landscape values. For better planning and management of landscape units such as recreational purposes, there is a need for emphasis on the visual aesthetic aspects, and also for understanding the climatic effects on recreation-seeking humans. Becker and TCI are models for assessment of human bioclimatic comfort and for this research both have been used for MianKaleh wildlife refuge. Climatic normal statistics were gathered from three synoptic stations covering the period 2001-2011. The result showed that bioclimatic comfort in the study area changed during the year from tolerable to excellent condition. Optimal conditions were seen in May, June, July, August, September and October. In the remaining months of the year we need measures to eliminate discomfort brouth about by inclement climatic conditions such as cold air for tourism.
