Trip Highlights

  • Possibly best trekking option outside Tehran in a non-touristic area of Central Alborz
  • Visit untouched villages and Tehran countryside
  • Hike through mountains and take photos in view points
  • Village accommodation
  • Enjoy nature sounds and its beauty

 

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.
