Trip Highlights

  • Hiking activity between villages outside Tehran
  • Experience untouched landscapes, river, sounds and colours of nature in a non-touristic area
  • Visit small villages in central Alborz Mountains
  • Hike through mountains and take photos in view points

 

 

Most travellers visiting Iran and Tehran miss the chance to see the countryside while there is great offerings around Tehran for adventure/cultural tourists. There are ski resorts, wildlife, protected areas, rock climbing opportunities,seasonal ice climbing and mountain biking areas around Tehran. It would be a good idea to escape Tehran and relax in the villages nearby for a couple of days. From the city, less than one hour drive will get you to the village we have chosen for your journey. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from the sea level and is covered by mountains of Central Alborz.

The hiking activity is between villages. The untouched landscape, river, sounds and colours of nature in a non-touristic area makes this trekking route a special one. While the first day is a short walk around the village, the second day has around 6 hours hiking up to 400- 500 m. We can perform this tour for the whole year and depending on the season you will see different scenes of nature.

For those interested the best time is from April to end of November. In the winter, although it is cold but is nice for hiking in the snow if equipped.

Day 1: Arrival to the village & walking around

Depart from Tehran to Fasham road in the afternoon by a private vehicle. You will be picked up from your hotel at 5 P.M. It takes only one hour to reach to the village. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from the sea level. When you arrive, first you will get relaxed in our place and then prepare for a short walk in the village. You will enjoy the birds singing and the river. After sightseeing and photography in the village, we will come back to the house preparing the dinner. Sometimes we make a night fire enjoying its warmth in the village. Sleeping is in a shared room on Iranian traditional style mattress. (D)

Day 2: Trekking between villages around

On this day we will have a short trekking between villages to get prepared for the next day’s long hiking. Today’s trekking would be a good acclimatization practice for those who live at sea level in their home town. After breakfast early morning, we will start trekking from the village. The chosen route is an interesting path close to river between mountains with many trees covering the way. We may see herds of sheep and their shepherds and guard dogs on this day. After a while we will stop at a point for a short rest. Then we will continue trekking through a canyon hiking up to 450 m. Around noon we will arrive to another village. After exploring the village and photography descending will start. We will be back in the afternoon. On arrival we will take a rest/shower and prepare the dinner. We will sleep one more night in the village. (B, L, D)

Day 3: Long trekking in Central Alborz protected areas & return to Tehran

We will rise up early in the morning at dusk. For this day a longer and tougher route has been chosen. We will go on the ridges to have a better view of the area. After drinking a fresh coffee we prepare our day pack and start trekking from the village. You will carry your packed lunch and breakfast and we will kick the road towards the top. There are a few mountains around the area which we will consider one of them for moderate trekking to reach the summit. The mountains are close to each other and if the weather is clear you can see Damavand Mountain. The altitude of the summit is between 3000-3200m, this means that we will hike up around 1200m from the starting point. Most of the route is on mountain ridges and we will traverse through many mountains.We will stop on the way for breakfast and will resume trekking till noon time to achieve the top. After taking a rest and having lunch at the top we will start descending to come back to the village.We will arrive in the late afternoon. After shower and rest, in the evening the driver will pick you up to Tehran (B, L)
