Lar National Park is a protected area around the massive Mt Damavand (5610 m) including a number of impressive 4000m+ peaks; all located in Central Alborz mountain range. It is in two provinces of Tehran and Mazandaran. Lar is a high altitude mountainous ecosystem only 70 km north east of the capital.
The Park is around 30,000 hectares in size. There are no residential areas in or around it. During the summer when the national park opens for local herdsmen, you will see semi nomadic shepherds from the warmer regions further south take their herds to graze in the summer months. You may also see some a variety of tribes making KOOCH (move to high altitude and cooler places in the hot season) in the park territory. Different species live in this park such as birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and aquatics (brown bear, viper, partridge, gamma and red-spotted trout). This area is also utilized by beekeepers due to the abundance of a variety of wild flowers. The park opens strictly from May to Mid- August and then is closed to the public. The best time to visit is beginning of May to the end of June when the land is covered with wild flowers. Visitors need entrance permit. We will obtain the permits for our guests. Since it is a bureaucratic and time consuming procedure we need sufficient time so there will be no delays.
